Bike Month Toronto

People gathered at Nathan Phillips Square for Bike Month

 

Bike Month is an opportunity for people to try riding a bike for the first time, learn new skills, or simply have fun and connect with new people. It’s taking the time to rekindle the youthful magic of exploring your neighbourhood by bike or share that joy with the next generation of bike riders. Bike Month is a celebration of cycling. Bike Month invites new, learning, and experienced riders to celebrate the joys and possibilities of cycling – from commuting to work or school, to running errands, to minding your health — riding a bike is a healthy, sustainable, and FUN way to get around.

Dust off your saddle, pump up your tires, and roll out with Bike Month 2024 by joining the annual Bike to Work Day Group Commute to Nathan Phillips Square on Thursday, June 6.

 

Stay tuned for more community rides across the city.

Bike Engagement Stations

Cycle Toronto will be holding pop-up bike engagement stations to provide people with safety checks and minor repairs for those who may not have access to a bike shop but want to get riding. We'll be able to help with things like inflating your tires, lubricating your chain, performing an ABC safety check, and anything else our teams can safely accomplish in a few minutes. These events are being delivered as part of the StreetSmartsTO program with support from the City of Toronto

And many more! Check out our events calendar for a full list.
