York Region is a great place to get out and explore by bicycle. Cycling clubs, specialty and repair shops, multi-use paths and YRT bike racks are all available, as are safety and education programs. We encourage our citizens to consider cycling. Cycling is a quick, smart and environmentally-friendly form of transportation.
