Take part in fun cycling events throughout June
Warm weather is finally here (we hope). What better way to celebrate than to jump on your bike and cruise around town during Bike Month?
There are a number of great events scheduled throughout June that are open to all Guelph residents. Most events are free, but you may need to register to participate. Visit bikemonth.ca/guelph/events for a list and details about the scheduled events.
Bike Theft Forum
June 18, 6-8 p.m.
Guelph City Hall
This is an accessible event. Registration for the forum is not required.
Guelph Police Service and the City of Guelph are hosting a bike theft forum. This free event includes a presentation and tips for protecting your bicycle from being stolen. We’ll also talk about registering your bike through 529 Garage, a free online bicycle database that can help track down your bicycle if it is stolen.
ReCycle bike reuse program
Don’t have a bike? No problem! Pick one up through the ReCycle bike reuse program. Bikes of all sizes, colours and conditions are available for free year-round at the Waste Resource Innovation Centre (WRIC).
Have too many bikes? You can drop off unwanted, usable bikes and bike parts at the WRIC for others to enjoy.
Guelph’s cycling network
Guelph has 70 kilometres of bike lanes, paved shoulders and multi-use paths, and more than 80 kilometres of off-road trails. We encourage you to explore your city on two wheels (or one, or three, or four…). Visit guelph.ca/bike for a city cycling map and bicycle road rules.
