The Toronto Bike Plan establishes a vision for cycling in Toronto. The Plan
sets out integrated principles, objectives and recommendations regarding
safety, education and promotional programs as well as cycling related
infrastructure, including a comprehensive bikeway network.

This year, approximately 50 organizations and community groups have joined with
the City of Toronto, Ontario Power Generation and the Toronto Parking Authority
to host nearly 100 cycling events.

Additional Bike Week scheduling information is available on the City's Web
site, http://www.toronto.ca/cycling. Brochures are also available for pick-up
