Bike Month | May 30 - June 30, 2022

Bike Month is an opportunity for people to try riding a bike for the first time, learn new skills, or simply have fun and connect with other cyclists. It’s about taking the time to rekindle the youthful magic of exploring your neighbourhood by bike or share that joy with the next generation of bike riders. Bike Month is a celebration of cycling.

Starting May 30, 2022 you’ll be able to log all the rides you take during Bike Month on the Smart Commute kilometre counter. We’ll tally them up here to see how far we’ve ridden together and the amount of greenhouse gas emissions we’ve saved. Let’s try to beat last year’s record and bike around the world twice – that’s 80,000 km!

Let's ride around the world together!

Those who log their rides in our kilometre counter will even be entered to win a prize (more information to be announced soon)!

My Smart Commute Challenge

The Smart Commute Program by the City of Toronto is challenging residents to adopt a smart commute. To support you, we have created a series of weekly newsletters with curated tips on transit, cycling, carpooling, driving less, walking, and enhancing the remote and hybrid work experience. You’ll learn how to have a COVID-safe, economical, and climate-friendly commute. To participate in this challenge, sign up for one or more of the modes that interest you. Then, tell us which helpful tips you used via #MySmartCommute on Twitter.
