Stickers & Sustainability

This year our stickers are 100% compostable and recyclable, and made with FSC-certified materials and soy-based inks! Additionally, we do all our sticker deliveries and pick ups by electric cargo bike. 

The stickers each feature a different program that Capital Bike runs promoting sustainable and active transportation – Go By Bike Week, Downtown Bike Valet, The Locker, Bike Smart, and a special Capital Bike one too!

The Sticker Challenge promotes travelling by active transportation as opposed to by car. By participating in the Sticker Challenge, you can experience first-hand how fast, easy, and more fun biking is than trips by a gas-powered vehicle, and simultaneously improving one’s mind, body, and planet!

This challenge also lets you explore new biking paths and try biking for trips you might not have thought of before. Plus, you’re helping support local groups that do good things in your community. Our hope is that taking part in the challenge will help more people see how great biking can be in the Capital Region.


The #StickerChallengeYYJ is on August 14-27! ???????? We challenge YOU to discover new places throughout the Capital Region! Explore your community, try out new cycling infrastructure, and support local businesses! As you visit more locations, you will be entered to win fantastic prizes worth thousands of dollars! ????
