Vancouver Community College recognized as bike friendly leader
Each year, HUB recognizes local businesses for their leadership and commitment to a more bike friendly future. However, this year marks the first ever Bike Friendly Business Awards ceremony, and Vancouver Community College will be one of the guests of honour.
Based on a series of bikeability criteria, the selection panel found that VCC is taking concrete steps towards encouraging cycling, and investing in healthier employees, sustainable transportation, and a more bike-friendly workplace. Out of the entire Metro Vancouver region, VCC's Downtown campus has been selected as the runner-up of the HUB 2013 Bike Friendly Business Award: Building Category.
VCC's Environment and Sustainability Manager, Wendy Avis says, “We couldn't be more proud! Cycling is a good way for our students to work exercise into their busy schedules and stay healthy while helping the planet. VCC supports all staff, faculty and students who bike to campus, and we're excited to build upon the amenities we currently provide.”
