About Us

Your New Capital Bike Society

Our aim is to be there for everyone who wants to enjoy cycling in the Capital Region – whether you’re new to the Region and perhaps just learning to ride, dusting off a bike that’s been the garage for a while, or an experienced rider who wants to connect with our vibrant cycling community. We want to be there to provide you with the skills, knowledge, and connections to make cycling an easy and fun transportation option.

When Everybody Rides, Everybody Wins

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.

About Us

We Can’t Ride Alone

Capital Bike has three full-time and two part-time staff more motivated by our mission than money. We have a volunteer Board of Directors and dozens of program volunteers. We’re proof that less is more and that a dedicated team can not only move mountains but encourage people to ride them. We rely heavily on companies, organizations, and individuals who appreciate the culture and commerce benefits of a bike-friendly and focused community.
