Even if we didn’t get the best weather (gross understatement), we had a lot of fun at the first edition of Qubiz Bike Ride last year. So much that we decided to do it again. This time when it’s a bit warmer outside.

So, we scheduled the second Qubiz Bike Ride for the 16th of June.

Qubiz Bike Ride 2017 in review

Published on November 6, 2017

When we planned Qubiz Bike Ride, the weather forecast indicated that 23rd of September was the perfect autumn day. With a temperature of about 20 degrees Celsius and a bit of sunshine, it was just the day for a bike ride.

Much to our surprise, 23rd of September turned out to be a rainy day. Come to think about it, probably one of the rainiest days this year.

Still, cold, rainy weather and all, the first edition of Qubiz Bike Ride was quite successful.

Qubiz Bike Ride: a cycling event for enthusiasts

Published on August 21, 2017

Maybe we don’t mention this as often as we should, but we’re really into sports. We play football, basketball, volley, and some of us go swimming or hit the gym regularly. Still, there is a special place in our hearts for riding our bikes.

Whenever possible, we bike to work instead of taking the car. Sometimes we get together for a longer bike ride on the hills of Oradea. Usually it’s good fun as we get to hang out together and do some exercise at the same time.

…And it was on one of these occasions that a thought popped up: what if we organised a bigger bike ride with, let’s say, 200 people? That’s how we got the idea for…

When you hear about jobs with health risks, you probably think of construction workers, miners or chemical engineers. But sitting in front of a screen all day – like developers do – can be very damaging to your health. So what can you do about that? Well you could just resign only to find that most jobs can impact your health in a way or another, or you could cultivate a few healthy habits that can help you beat the odds.

So we at Qubiz have figured out that it might help if we made the whole process easy and fun:

About Andrei we spoke in a past article on our blog, as he represents Qubiz at various bike competitions, being organised in Romania and abroad. This year, he rode his bike in 16 competitions, managing to finish in the top 3 in 15 of them. For the next year, he has many plans; one of them is to participate in more competitions than he had this year. We wish him good luck.

During the last three months, Andrei took part in the following 5 bike competitions:

This autumn’s sports competitions for the Qubiz Team

Published on October 17, 2014
- in Blog, Sports

This autumn brought several sports competitions for the Qubiz Team. In fact, 2014 was full of sports events for which our team members competed. We believe that “Mens sana in corpore sano” is not a myth, but a fact of life, a philosophy that we reinforce by encouraging our employees to practice sports, eat healthy and then do a pretty damn good job! Hehe, the latter one is tongue-in-cheek!

Anyway, back to sports competitions… Following the bike contests, where we won a lot of awards, and the running and swimming competitions we partook in the first half of the year, it was the time for new sports challenges to turn up.

In 2014 we are continuing the good habits from last year, when we wanted to have in Qubiz a focus also on a healthy life.

June was for sure the most active month for us related to sports due to our participations in sport competitions: from biking and running to swimming for a humanitarian cause.

Healthy life at Qubiz

Published on October 17, 2013

In Qubiz, we put emphasis on a healthy life next to a professional work approach. We usually start our mornings with fresh fruits and we end our afternoons or weekends with sports activities and sometimes even competitions. The point is to keep a balance between our work efforts and a clear healthy body and mind. Currently some of us take swimming classes, others play tennis, take biking trips, go to the gym or run.

2013 is for the Qubiz team a year when the most competitive of us took on running and biking competitions, but also some of us decided to overcome their fears of restless swimming pool waters.
