It’s time to get out those bike helmets and pump up those tires, because the annual Go By Bike Week is almost here.

This annual event (formerly known as Bike to Work Week) encourages anyone in the Capital Region to give cycling a try for one week.

From May 30th to June 5th, BC Transit said they will be offering free transportation for cyclists looking to hop on a bus for whatever reason. 

In order to ride for free in the Victoria Regional Transit System, participants must use the bus bike racks or show their bike helmet when boarding the bus. 

All BC Transit buses are equipped with bike racks on the front of the bus, making it easier for cyclists to combine sustainable forms of transportation when travelling longer distances or when weather changes throughout the day. 

BC Transit reminds cyclists that bike racks on community buses and smaller fleet buses cannot be used after dark, as they obstruct headlights. 

You can learn more about traveling with your bike on the bus here.
