Pedal Poll

Please volunteer to count the cyclists in Saskatoon: Volunteer for Pedal Poll 2022

We’re looking for volunteers who will observe cyclists passing by, collecting valuable data on who is biking and where. This information gives us a snapshot of what cycling looks like in Saskatoon (and the country), so we can better address issues of access and safety for people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.

You can volunteer to count the cyclists in Saskatoon here: Volunteer for Pedal Poll 2022

BYXE Week 2022: A Quick Review

Thanks to everyone who joined us to celebrate cycling with this spring’s BYXE Week!

The City of Saskatoon was a tremendous partner throughout the process, and we are grateful to have had their support. Events like these showcase the importance of cycling in a community, engage and connect people, and also reveal challenges we can all work on together. We look forward to building on the energy and existing infrastructure within our city and its government to make Saskatoon ever better for cycling.

The local business community rose to the occasion, either to answer the call to act as hosts for the Bike To Work Day commuter stations, or to donate prizes for general participation. Our first, in-person Bike To Work Day in two years saw over 700 visits to participating stations!

We acknowledge all of the BYXE participating businesses and organizations on our BYXE Week/Bike to Work Day page. We encourage you to visit and thank them whenever you get a chance; these events depend on their warm and generous involvement.

Finally, we thank you, the Saskatoon cyclists! Thank you for embracing the challenge and joy of riding your bike when the forecast is “iffy”, for checking off boxes on the scavenger hunt page, for visiting great city art and decorated bikes, grabbing a muffin at a commuter station, and for generally “sharing your pedal adventure” with us! You are the lifeblood that moves through the city’s arteries, and we’re glad you chose to do it more on bikes during BYXE Week!

Remember, together we can make EVERY week BYXE Week! 🙂


It’s also always a great time to remind you that our work relies heavily on donations from enthusiastic bike riders who want to see the cycling infrastructure and culture in Saskatoon continue to bloom and grow. Our programs make an important impact on the quality of life in Saskatoon. Please support our efforts with your donations or with your time as a volunteer.
