Share your love of cycling or get started biking in Markham! The Bike Host program loans a bicycle, helmet and lock to newcomers for the summer, and matches them with a mentor who is an experienced cyclist. Together, they explore the city and participate in cycling events.
Bike Host Program Benefits
As reported by participants in the 2016 program, the top three benefits of participating in Bike Host are fun, health and exercise, and getting to know new people. 86% of participants agreed that the program improved their cycling skills and knowledge; by the end of the program participants reported that 31% of their daily trips were made by bike, on average! Not surprisingly, 75% of participants reported saving money on transit fares. 92% would recommend the program to friends or family. View the details in this Report, prepared by Trudy Ledsham and Emma Heffernan of the Toronto Cycling Think and Do Tank.
