It’s hard to pass life by when you’re on a bike. Cycling connects people to their communities. To ride-by shop and grab a coffee without worrying about parking. Smell the roses and say ‘hi’ to your neighbours. And when you pedal to work or the park, you’re protecting both the planet and your health.

We rely heavily on companies, organizations, and individuals who appreciate the culture and commerce benefits of a bike-friendly and focused community.
