Toronto Parks and Recreation will release its brand new Toronto Cycling Map at

designated bike lanes, signed bike routes, as well as bike trails in parks.

The Toronto Cycling Committee (TCC) welcomes the public's input on the Master
Cycling Plan Study, to visit the display booth and talk to TCC members about
bicycle safety and the City's many services and programs such as the Road and
Trail Safety Ambassadors, CAN-BIKE and Bike Week.

The Road & Trail Safety Ambassadors are a team of safety experts who provide
safety information to all road and trail users - cyclists, pedestrians, in-line
skaters, and motor vehicle drivers. They operate throughout the City from four
base locations: north, south, east and west.

The Toronto Cycling Committee is a citizen body that works with community
groups and City Council to build a social, physical and economic infrastructure
that supports and encourages bicycle use in Toronto.
