About Us

Mission: Bike Windsor Essex is a member-based advocacy group representing all bike lovers in Windsor and Essex County, to help make our region safer and more bike friendly.

Goals: Bike Windsor Essex’s advocacy efforts are grounded in what we hear from our members and the broader community. We are knowledgeable about best practices and share our knowledge and make bike-friendly recommendations to government agencies and related organizations, including:

    • City of Windsor Council, Planning and Transportation Engineers
    • County of Essex Council and Transportation Engineer including engineers and planners for LaSalle, Tecumseh, Kingsville, Essex
    • County Wide Active Transportation System (CWATS)
    • Share the Road Essex County
    • Share the Road Cycling Coalition (Ontario)
    • Ontario by Bike
    • Windsor Detroit Bridge Authority

We were established in 2010 as Bike Friendly Windsor and are a registered non-profit. We are a membership based grassroots cycling advocacy group representing all bike lovers across the City of Windsor and Essex County. We advocate for safer streets for all vulnerable road users, promote the legitimacy of cycling, and accessibility for all who choose to cycle.

We meet the first Tuesday of every month and welcome all in the community to join us to talk about current campaigns, road challenges, and upcoming cycling events.
