The mission of Bike to Work Day YXE is to attract new cyclists to commuting while celebrating the efforts of those who already use their bikes to get to and from work and other commitments.

If you don’t want to bike the whole way, take the bus! All Saskatoon Transit buses are equipped with bike racks

What to Expect
Commuter Stations will be set up at various locations around the city from 7:00 - 9:00 a.m. on Bike to Work Day YXE on Wednesday, May 15, 2019. Stations are hosted by participating local businesses and organizations, and the public can enjoy grab-and-go refreshments, information, and 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.

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.

If you are interested in hosting a Commuter Station, please read through the Bike to Work Station Guide and email biketoworkyxe@gmail.com or call 306-652-1400.
