This year’s GoByBikeBC theme is all about SHIFTING YOUR MODE through choosing to bike instead of taking motorized transport. Not only are you reducing your carbon footprint, but you'll be promoting a healthier lifestyle!
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 an amazing cycling adventure for two in Croatia! The more times you enter a Mode Shift, the more entries will have to win a E-Bike! Learn more by clicking here!
The NIC teams are open to anyone who wants to join: employees, students, partners, friends. All are welcome!
NIC will be hosting community celebration stations for GoByBike Week. Stop by and say hi!
