Hastings Crossing is excited to participate in HUB‘s first annual Bike to Shop Day! On Saturday, August 13th from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm, celebrate cycling as transportation in a new way! Ride your bike to Celebration Stations throughout the city, join a themed ride, and explore stores through the discount providers’ map.

HUB will be hosting celebration stations in various areas of downtown Vancouver – one of them being Hasting Crossing’s Victory Square! Stop by celebration stations and say hi for free snacks, drinks, prizes, basic tune ups and tips on how you can make shopping trips by bike easier and more convenient! In addition, pick up a Bike to Shop Passport at any celebration station, then stop by participating stores to complete your passport. Check out the discount map below to find out which businesses are participating. More discount providers added daily. Completed passports can be dropped off at a HUB station, where you will be entered to win a $500 Denman Bike Shop VIP gift card!

Registration for this event is free! Even if you do not plan on attending, register to show local businesses and decision-makers that people on bikes stop and shop! It also makes you eligible to win great prizes. The grand prize is a BC weekend getaway for two to the Okanagan, including flights and a two-night hotel. If you register by July 31, you are entered to win the Early Bird prize: a Classic 2.0 Garment Pannier from Two Wheel Gear.
