More than 3,000 Kelowna residents took part in 2023 Spring GoByBike Week


Spring GoByBike Week in review:

Thousands of cyclists took to the streets as part of Spring GoByBike Week 2023. 

More than 3,200 people participated in the Kelowna and Central Okanagan GoByBike Week, and more than 102,000 kilometres were logged on These trips by bike saved over 22,000 kilograms of GHG emissions from entering our local environment — the same impact of taking about 255 cars off the road for the week. 

The event encouraged participants to ride to work, school, for errands, exercise or fun and invited them to show up at 19 different celebration stations across the region throughout the week to check in, enter for prizes, collect giveaways, provide feedback on city bike plans and participate in activities.  Nearly 1,000 riders were counted coming through the five daily celebration stations at Stuart Park, The Rail Trail behind Parkinson Recreation Centre, Grizzli Winery in West Kelowna, Ben Lee Park in Rutland and the Railside Brewery wrap up event.   

Organizers thank the local sponsors who hosted events and celebration stations and contributed prizes for the daily giveaways.
