It’s time for the SHCS Road Warriors—one of UBC’s top teams!—to get ready for the next round of Go by Bike Week (formerly Bike To Work Week), which takes place October 16–29. This fall, you’ll have two weeks to pedal for prizes..
We would love to have new SHCS recruits from all departments and divisions join the riders already on our roster.
The goal is to log the team’s bike rides during Go by Bike Week, any length and for any reason—such as riding to work, for fun, or while doing errands. Be part of the change and help make Metro Vancouver a happier, healthier place to live, work and play.
Instead of daily prizes, you can win prizes from three different prize categories based on how many trips you log throughout the entire week. Remember: The more you ride, the more prizes you’re eligible to win!
