Go By Bike Week: Register Now!

Hello Bicycle Enthusiasts!

From May 30 to June 5, UVic will be participating in the annual Greater Victoria Go By Bike Week (previously Bike to Work Week)! GBBW is committed to raising the profile of commuter cyclists and celebrating cycling as a fun and sustainable way to get around our city. Last year, UVic’s participants cycled over 13,000 km over the course of the week!

ANY bike ride counts. You can even log rides taken on smaller wheels like scooters and rollerblades!

What we need from you:

After an interesting last couple of years, we want to make a come back and increase the number of staff and faculty participating, and we can’t do this without you! Please reach out to your department and encourage those interested to find a group and form a team (or email us for a team listing).

Registration is open – all you need to do is create an account and register/join a new team!

As a team leader, please register your team and indicate that your team is from UVic so we can keep track of our progress. Once the team is created, please email action@uvic.ca with your team name. 

Once you’ve created a new account, be sure to check out the Greater Victoria Community page to see updates as GBBW approaches!
