This year’s GoByBikeBC theme is #AnyRideCounts – walking, cycling, transit, car pooling. Whether you’re going to and from work, to get groceries, to get some fresh air or meet up for a coffee with friends, trail rides, pump track laps, recreational rides – every thing counts!
Each NIC campus has a team this year! Join us and track your rides and you’ll be entered for a prize draw, as well as the chance to win a provincial prize of a self-guided cycling adventure for two in Italy!
The NIC teams are open to anyone who wants to join: employees, students, partners, friends. All are welcome!
