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.
