Discover the joy of biking during Bike Month
Brampton, ON (May 31, 2021) - Bike Month is an annual event celebrated from May 31 through June 30 across Peel Region that offers many opportunities for residents of all ages and abilities to try biking for the first time and explore the growing network of bike routes throughout Peel.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, riding a bike continues to be a safe mode of transportation for essential workers and others making essential trips. It’s also a healthy way to explore your community while getting some exercise.
Whether you are a new rider, want to learn new skills, or simply want to have fun and connect with family and friends in a safe and healthy way, Bike Month has something for you:
Bike Month Event Calendar
The Bike Month event calendar is where people can share community events. You'll find online cycling webinars, rides, and other activities taking place throughout the month. While we encourage you to get outside and ride your bike, please always follow up-to-date public health guidelines. bikemonth.ca/events
“Bingo!” That's what you'll be shouting just by having fun on your bike. Every bingo square has a fun bike-related activity that will keep you active during Bike Month. Complete five bingo activities for your chance to win one of five prize packs that include a bell and water bottle!
We are introducing the Bike Month Kilometre Counter where you can keep track of the kilometres you have ridden and the positive impact you’re having on the environment.
