Thank you for supporting GoByBike BC Society and Bike to Work & School Week in British Columbia!
GoByBike BC Society (formerly Bike to Work BC Society) is a registered non-profit society that exists to secure and share resources to communities across BC to help them deliver successful events that encourage people to use bicycles for everyday transportation. All of our activities are possible thanks to the generosity of funders such as the Province of BC, Corporate Sponsors, and through donations from people like you!
YOUR DONATIONS ARE NEEDED!
Any and all donation amounts are gratefully received and collectively add up to make a BIG difference. Our goal is to help people experience the joy of using a bike for transportation! We do this by organizing provincial encouragement campaigns that motivate people to try GoingByBike. Once people try GoingByBike, many discover that it is enjoyable, and they continue to GoByBike regularly. This habitual change brings physical and mental health benefits, improves people’s quality of life, and also helps lower greenhouse gases as people begin to rely less on motorized vehicles to get around and more on their bicycles. We’ve collected hundreds of stories from people about how GoByBike programs have helped change their lives, read them here.
You can make a one-time or monthly donation by choosing an amount below, or choosing to donate “Other Amount”. You can cancel monthly donations at anytime through PayPal or via contacting us.
