Hijabs and Helmets
Hijabs and Helmets is a program to promote cycling amongst the Muslim communities in Toronto.
The program provides an inclusive and supportive community for hijabis and their allies and creates a comfortable and accommodating space for them to engage in recreational bike rides, grow their cycling skills, and explore the city.
We recognize that many visibly Muslim women navigate and face cultural and social barriers in order to engage in cycling. The program strives to make it easier for our Muslim sisters to integrate cycling into their daily lives without having to compromise their individual lifestyles, beliefs, and commitments.
With our anti-islamophobic and pro-active lifestyle framework, we aim to make cycling more inclusive by empowering hijab-wearing individuals to rightfully feel comfortable, belonged, and safe as they bike.
