Winter Wheels: Cycle Smart in Winter

Winter Wheels LogoRiding your bicycle in winter is a fun, safe and reliable way to travel – and we’ll show you how! Our Winter Wheels program will provide aspiring cold-weather riders with equipment and support to cycle through the winter. Twenty-five participants will receive a free set of winter tires and get information and support on how to ride through the winter season safely and comfortably. Program highlights will include workshops on winter riding gear, safe riding skills, and winter bike maintenance. We’ll run fun, organized rides through the winter months and celebrate International Winter Ride to Work Day in February. In return, participants must make a commitment to get out on their bike at least once a week throughout the winter, share their stories and help increase the visibility and number of winter bike riders in the region. 

Want to join our riders?  The application to the Winter Wheels 2021/22 program is now open – apply online here.  All interested people are encouraged to apply. Twenty-five individuals will be selected. Applications will close Nov 1.
