Get Your Vote On and @ridings4ridings are teaming up to provide expert tandem bike riders to pick you up and take you to the polls! In addition to four bike stops in Davie Village, Commercial Drive, Main & 49th, and Kitsilano on election day, we will also be able to pick up a limited number of voters from their homes!

The City of Vancouver will be one big election day party on Nov 19!

Here is some Riding for Ridings info as well:


SAT NOV. 19th 2011!

What if Voting was made more accessible?

What if Democracy was people powered?

Transformation Projects and GetYourVoteOn Present:


Where you get a to the voting booth.

The idea is simple. We have collected a fleet of tandem bicycles from local businesses and we have recruited a safety conscious bunch of cyclists. And now we want to give you a ride to the polls.

    In just one week we will be going to the polls to elect our Mayor, City Councilors, Parks Board, and School Board.

    In Vancouver, this election has a special importance to the cycling community. Gregor Robertson and the Vision/COPE team have demonstrated a strong commitment to cycling investments, including the downtown separated bike lanes.

    But unfortunately, the NPA wants to stall and turn back this progress. One council candidate has suggested taking out the downtown lanes for half the year, while others have called for thelicensing of all cyclists. Meanwhile, Suzanne Anton wants a moratorium on new separated bike lanes downtown.

    The choice is clear. We need to elect Gregor Robertson and the progressive COPE/Vision slate to ensure cycling continues to improve in Vancouver

    Over 60,000 trips are made by bike in Vancouver every day, yet council elections are often decided by fewer than 1,000 votes. As a community, we have the power to help decide this critical election. There are four key things you can do to help make this happen:

    1) Go vote! Advance polls are open this week throughout the city, and election day is Saturday, Nov 19.

    2) Volunteer for the COPE or Vision campaigns! They need lots of support, especially on election day (so do vote early!)

    3) Join us to talk to cyclists on the bike routes about this election. Email to sign up!

    4) Spread the word- talk to your friends about the importance of this election! And please pass this message along to other cyclists.

    With your help, we can make sure that city hall continues to support the cycling community in Vancouver.
