A program to help newcomer youth explore Markham by bike this summer. Youth aged 13-25 are loaned a refurbished bicycle and lock and are given a helmet and repair kit to keep. Throughout the summer, they ride independently around the city and participate in twice weekly virtual discussions sessions about cycling.
Topics covered include:
- Where to ride in Markham
- Cycling Safety
- Bike Maintenance Basics
- Transportation Equity
- Biking for the Planet
Youth will share their experiences of cycling in Markham in a creative piece at the end of the program.
This program is being offered in partnership with the CICS Youth Centre. To sign up, please visit their website.
