Bike to Work Day

Covid-19 Response: Bike to Work Day 2020 Update

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, City-organized public events and in-person engagement activities have been cancelled until further notice. The health, safety and well-being of our employees and members of the public, and maintaining core services are our top priorities. If Bike to Work Day is rescheduled, we will advertise via social media and on this webpage. Thank you for your understanding.

Why Bike to Work?

Cycling is a healthy, convenient and low-cost form of everyday transportation that improves our community by decreasing traffic congestion and reducing air pollution. We hope this event inspires more people to think of cycling as a regular means of transportation and to experience the benefits of arriving at work feeling refreshed, energized and alert. 

What to Expect

Commuter Stations are set up at various locations around the city from 7:00 - 9:00 a.m. on Bike to Work Day. Stations are hosted by participating local businesses and organizations, and the public can enjoy grab-and-go refreshments, information, and have some fun on their way to work. Check out the Map My Ride tab for an update list of stations and plan your route to stop by one or more of them.

When safe to do so, snap a photo and upload it to social media using the hashtags #BikeToWorkYXE and #BYXE to show us how your commute is going!

If you live too far from work to bike the entire way, consider taking Saskatoon Transit part of the way. Plan your trip using the Transit app and Google Transit. All buses are equipped with front bike racks that are free and easy to use. The bike racks also accommodate fat tires.
