Toronto City Council has adopted a staff report recommendation that Toronto's sidewalk cycling bylaw shall stipulate "no person age 14 and older may ride a bicycle on a sidewalk". The fine for an adult who rides a bicycle on a sidewalk shall be $60. The intent of this bylaw is to allow young children to cycle on the sidewalk while they learn to ride. This is a Toronto Municipal Code bylaw and so rules will vary in different communities across Ontario.

Toronto Municipal Code Bylaw 950-300 stipulates that no person shall ride a bicycle, skateboard, longboard, in-line skate or roller-skates, coaster, scooter, toy vehicle, toboggan, sleight or similar device on a sidewalk recklessly or negligently or at a speed or in a manner that is dangerous to the public, having regard to the circumstances. The fine for this offence is $90.

Bicycles are vehicles according to the Ontario Highway Traffic Act (HTA) and so cyclists may be charged with the HTA offences of careless driving. The fine for careless driving is $400.00 to $2000.00

Cycling education and cycling safety tips can be found on the City of Toronto website.

Toronto Police are responsible for enforcement in this matter.
