Markham Cycles is Markham’s community bicycle hub, launched in 2019, and the first of its kind in York Region. It is a critical piece of Markham’s cycling infrastructure, and a key driver in getting more Markham residents out on their bikes.
Our goal is to build cycling culture in Markham by removing barriers, providing education and make it easier for people to start cycling. Due to the generous support of our funders and partners, we offer free programs and workshops to anyone who is interested in cycling. These programs include access to bikes and tools at drop-in bike repair sessions, workshops on cycling topics, cycling mentorship and loans, community bike rides, bike rescue and youth-focused programs.
Markham Cycles is a project of The Centre for Active Transportation at Clean Air Partnership (CAP), a registered charity. We work in close cooperation with the City of Markham, the Markham’s Cycling and Pedestrian Advisory Committee, and the other partners and funders listed below to deliver our cycling programming in Markham.
Since 2014, first in Peel Region, then Scarborough, and now Markham, one of TCAT’s key strategic priorities is to build bike culture in suburban communities through community bike hubs. In 2022, with support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, TCAT will expand the programs offered at the existing Markham Cycles Community Bicycle Hub, establish a new community bicycle hub in Newmarket, and host programs at satellite sites in York Region.
Bike Hub Locations
Markham Cycles’s community bike hubs are located at Milliken Mills and Centennial Community Centre. Keep on a look out for a shipping container with a bicycle mural in the parking lot. For a schedule on programming and events at each hubs, please check out our events calendar.
