In a typical year, Cycle Toronto offers a wide variety of programs and events to help encourage cycling as a means of increasing mental and physical health, decreasing emissions, reducing living expenses, building community and more. 2020 is not a typical year, but we still encourage cycling. While we might not be able to safely gather in public for the time being, riding a bike is still a healthy and affordable means of completing essential trips and many of Canada’s essential workers rely on a bike as their main form of transportation.
We’ve put together a growing list of useful resources for those seeking to ride a bike for the first time or people that want to find new ways to use their bike.

Cycling in the time of COVID-19
Our daily lives have changed dramatically in the past few weeks as the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread around the world. We’d like to help explain what the virus means for cycling in Toronto.
