HUB Cycling is a charitable not-for-profit organization that has spent more than two decades removing barriers to cycling in Metro Vancouver, while cultivating the health, environmental, and economic benefits that active transportation can bring. HUB Cycling has educated and motivated thousands of people, and championed improvements that #UnGapTheMap to create a more connected cycling network.
HUB Cycling’s mission is to get more people cycling more often. We make cycling better through education, action and events. More cycling means healthier, happier, more connected communities. We’re leading the way in making cycling an attractive choice for everyone.
HUB Cycling is committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive organization. Diversity is integral to this commitment. Diversity among our members, volunteers, staff and Board of Directors allows us to better understand, connect to, and respond to the needs of HUB members and the broader communities we engage with. HUB Cycling encourages women, Indigenous people, people of colour, and LGBTQIA and individuals from other diverse communities to apply, and we encourage you to self-identify in your application.

In 2017 and 2018 HUB Cycling offered the Newcomer Bike Mentor (Host) Program in collaboration with Immigrant Services Society of BC (ISSofBC). The first of its kind in Vancouver, the program matched recent immigrants and refugees with local “host/mentor” volunteers for companionship and cultural orientation to Vancouver’s active cycling transportation lifestyle. In 2021, we’re excited to re-launch this program in Vancouver and Surrey in partnership with ISSofBC, and in collaboration with Toronto and Halifax service organizations, with three year funding from the Public Health Agency of Canada.
Through the program recently arrived immigrants and refugees receive city cycling orientation and instruction, then are matched for three months to spend time with skilled and knowledgeable mentor volunteers to become familiar with local city cycling. Through their mentor matching, newcomers will become oriented to Vancouver or Surrey’s cycling routes, rules, and culture, while having fun exploring urban spaces by bike together.
HUB Cycling seeks a Program Manager for the Newcomer Bike Mentor Program. The Program Manager will join our accomplished Bike Education team, working with direct supervision by the HUB Director of Bike Education. They will also work in coordination with the HUB Director of Program Development, and with frontline and management staff of the ISSofBC. The Bike Mentor Program Manager will be responsible for the oversight, coordination, budgeting, public relations, evaluation and reporting of the Greater Vancouver portion of this multi-year program, and will also play key coordination role for these activities with service providers in Toronto and Halifax, which will be operating under the same ISSofBC master contract.
