Around the world in many cities, there are Bike to Work days, weeks and months. These celebrations raise awareness of the benefits of cycling, and to try to encourage people to ride their bikes more.

Each year, Toronto’s Bike Month events kick off with Bike to Work Day which takes place on the last Monday of May. This is a joint event between the City of Toronto and Cycle Toronto.

Beginning in 2012, the City partnered with Cycle Toronto, to transition Bike Month into a community-based program.
