HUB Cycling's aim is to get more people cycling, more often. The charitable non-profit uses education, action and events to achieve this mission.

 

The Bike to Work Program Manager plays a critical role in getting more people cycling more often in Metro Vancouver and spreading the word about the benefits of bike commuting to the larger community, through the organization of fall and spring Bike to Work Week events and publicity.

 

HUB Bike to Work Week is the largest of HUB's events. Each spring and fall, Bike to Work Week encourages everyone to bike the daily commute. Over 17,000 people register in Metro Vancouver each year, logging their commutes, winning prizes, and making their community a better place to live, work and play. Thousands more will attend the public events including Launch and Wrap-up Parties, media engagement activities and over 100 motivational Celebration Stations where bike commuters can stop during their morning or afternoon commutes for free giveaways, refreshments, snacks, bike tuning and daily draws.

 

The Bike to Work Program Manager will be responsible for overseeing event planning and logistics for HUB's Spring and Fall Bike to Work Weeks as well as related events like the Bike to Work Week Fashion Show and Bike Awards.
