Introducing a brand new handbook for families

Download the Toronto Cycling Handbook: Family Edition.

Launched at Bike to School Week 2019, this new resource is designed to get you started riding with your family.

Have you ever seen an elaborate cargo bike or trailer set-up and thought - I want to ride with my kids, but that just seems too complicated and expense? We want to make riding a bike with your family doable. You don’t need training, an expensive bike, or special gear. You just need a few tips to get you started and figure out what works for you. Whether you’re pregnant, have a young child, or want to support your kids riding to middle school, this guide will be a helping hand.

The Toronto Cycling Handbook: Family Edition was created in partnership with CultureLink Settlement and Community Services. Funding and support provided by the Metcalf Foundation and the Toronto Cycling Think and Do Tank.

Cycling is for everyone!

Join over 1.4 million Torontonians who ride bicycles because it's convenient, healthy, inexpensive, and fun.

This handbook will teach you about your bicycle, our traffic laws, and safe cycling habits. When riding your bike in Toronto, always remember to use your best judgement, take your time, and to have fun! 

The Toronto Cyclists Handbook is available in 13 languages, including English.
