Capital Bike has lined up some good eats for cyclists to keep them fueled while they hit the trails visiting Celebration Stations.
The region’s biggest, free cycling event features 13 Celebration Stations during the week-long event starting May 29th and running until the closing Oak Bay Bike Block Party on June 4th.
“Last year Go by Bike Week participants cycled around 390,000 kilometers throughout the Capital Region!” shares Jordan Glowicki, Capital Bike Events Manager, “That amount of cycling required 10,746,840 calories to be burned. This year we have your energy needs more than covered with great snacks, fruit, and other goodies from our amazing sponsors!”
This year Capital Bike is proudly partnering with Hornby Organic as the Official 2023 Snack Sponsor of Go By Bike Week. Just like the event is for everyone, so are Hornby Bars. They are gluten-free, certified organic, and Canadian-made, and every cyclist who stops by a Celebration this year will get to enjoy their very own, for free!
Hornby Organics has sponsored over $21,000 worth of Hornby Organics Bars for the 2023 Go By Bike Week events! They are also offering 15% off bars when purchased on their website to folks who are on the Capital Bike Newsletter list.

“This will be our second year providing support to Go By Bike Week. I am very pleased to support those groups that promote healthier lifestyles.

Go By Bike Week looks to have significant traction and I can see the size of the event growing well over time.” shares Shaun Erdei Country Grocer, Royal Oak Store Manager, fruit sponsor.
Morning cyclists will get their buzz on, courtesy of Level Ground Coffee Roasters. “It’s a privilege for Level Ground Coffee Roasters to sponsor Go By Bike Week.” Says Stacey Toews, Co-founder, Level Ground Coffee Roasters, “We know that most of our best days in Victoria involve a Level Ground Coffee and bike ride and that’s why it’s wonderful for Level Ground Coffee Roasters to sponsor Go By Bike Week.
