Bike to Work days, weeks and months are observed in many cities worldwide. These celebrations raise awareness of the benefits of cycling, and feature events and campaigns that encourage people to discover the joy of cycling.
Each year, Toronto’s Bike Month begins with the morning Bike to Work Day group ride, which takes place on the last Monday of May. This is a joint event between the City of Toronto and Cycle Toronto, where people cycling from each end of the city converge at Nathan Phillips Square to hear speeches from City Councillors and staff, enjoy refreshments, and pick up cycling maps and resources.
Beginning in 2012, the City partnered with Cycle Toronto, to transition Bike Month into a community-based program.
