The 2022 return of GoByBike Week also brings the return of in-person Celebration Stations and events! From May 30 until June 3 there will be a variety of events hosted by local sponsors and partners to celebrate biking and bring the community together.   

“Whether you bike to work, as a hobby, or as a sport, every ride counts and I encourage not only Kelowna residents, but all of the Central Okanagan to register for GoByBike Week,” said City of Kelowna Mayor, Colin Basran. “Biking is a great way to explore the community and stay active, and it’s great for the environment.”
