Cycle Commuting Tips - Join the VACC!
Posted: Sep 09 2009
If you ride your bike for transportation, fitness or pleasure in the Lower Mainland, consider investing in a membership with the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition. (VACC)
This not-for-profit group is a strong advocacy voice in support of cycling in BC, and adding your name to their membership means adding your name to a list of people concerned about improving the cycling environment in our urban areas. In addition to advocating at multiple levels of government, they promote cycling to people of all ages and experience levels, and even offer classes, group rides and courses to help anyone ride and feel safe and confident in traffic.
The cost of a VACC membership is only $30 per year – and best of all there are a wide range of benefits for members that quickly allow cyclists to save many times that amount. Green businesses (via Green Zebra ), car share prorgams and of course many local bike shops (including Different Bikes in all our locations) provide discounts to members.

Different Bikes is a corporate member of VACC and a proud supporter through Bike to Work Week and by providing special year-round discounts which are available to all members.
