Education

Educational Programs & Initiatives

We offer a wide variety of educational programs and initiatives to bring safe cycling to people from all walks of life.

 

Our dream is to bring high-quality active transportation education to every Torontonian that wants it. We want everyone to know what it’s like to ride a bike; the way you relate to your city, how fun it can be, the money it can save, and how to stay safe on the road. Street Smarts is what we call our educational programming to help people learn the joy of riding a bike. Without your help we can't keep our Street Smarts programs running, and expand them in them the future.

Road Rules Videos

When it comes to getting around Toronto, knowing the rules is one thing - understanding the reality is another. We took some of the most ambiguous situations between road users and put them into easy to understand videos.

Street Smarts Workshops

Cycle Toronto's interactive Street Smarts workshops cover the benefits of commuting by bicycle, laws that govern cyclists and motorists, techniques for safe street riding, basic bike maintenance, route selections, and more.

Bike to School Project

The trip to and from school is an important part of the day for children and youth. We work with CultureLink's Bike to School Project to advocate for improved cycling infrastructure in and around schools and bike education among children and youth.

Get Lit!

We flag down unlit cyclists as they pass, educating them on the importance of bike lights and providing them with a free set for a safe ride home.
