Scarborough Cycles

Scarborough Cycles is a collaborative project led by the Toronto Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT) and supported by CultureLink Settlement and Community Services, the Toronto Cycling Think & Do Tank, and Cycle Toronto.

In June 2016, Scarborough Cycles will establish two Bike Hubs in Scarborough.  One hub will be located at Birchmount Bluffs Neighbourhood Centre, a vital community meeting place that for over 25 years has offered a range of all-ages programming to Scarborough residents.  Another hub will be at AccessPoint on Danforth, part of Access Alliance Multicultural Health and Community Services, which has been helping Toronto's diverse communities achieve health with dignity for the past 25 years.

Both Bike Hubs will offer access to bicycles, tools, repair clinics, and provide 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.
