Bike anywhere - anytime - all week!

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 your destination feeling refreshed, energized and alert. If you live too far 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

Virtual for 2021

We’re partnered with Saskatoon Cycles to try out a new, physically-distanced approach to our annual Bike to Work Day. Rather than visiting commuter stations during one morning, we encourage you to get out and explore Saskatoon by bike anywhere, anytime, and all week! Join our Facebook Event to learn about the week-long activities planned - and update your profile pic with our BYXE Week Profile Frame to let your friends know about the event.

Can you find all the decorated bikes around the city? Here's a map of 8 locations to visit.
