Go By Bike Week - Squamish

Squamish CAN is proud to be partnering with the District of Squamish and the GoByBike BC Society to host and organize GoByBike week in Squamish. 

Previously under the name of Bike to Work & School Week, GoByBike week is a community
event that encourages people to commute by bicycle. It is an annual event that takes place all
over British Columbia at the end of October and May, celebrating the social, health and
environmental benefits of cycling. Schools, businesses, families, and individuals are encouraged to participate!


Riding a bicycle for recreation or transportation is part of a healthy lifestyle and can help prevent chronic health issues through regular exercise. It is also a lot of fun!

Many local businesses support Go By Bike Week - Be Clean Naturally made special bike soap bars for cyclists.
