SCARBOROUGH CYCLES


20151111_152423Scarborough Cycles is a collaborative project led by the Toronto Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT), a project of the registered charity Clean Air Partnership, in partnership with CultureLink Settlement and Community Services, the Toronto Cycling Think & Do Tank (at the University of Toronto), and Cycle Toronto.

Scarborough Cycles has opened community bike hubs at AccessPoint on Danforth (3079 Danforth Ave.) and Birchmount Bluffs Neighbourhood Centre (93 Birchmount Rd.).

Our Bike Hubs offer access to bicycles, tools, do-it-yourself repair clinics, workshops, group rides, a bike mentorship program for newcomers, and civic engagement opportunities for residents.

The project goals are:

  1. Create and disseminate new knowledge about cycling in the suburbs.
  2. Build capacity among local agencies and individuals to support cycling.
  3. Address barriers to cycling.
  4. Engage with residents and stakeholders about the benefits of improved cycling infrastructure.
