Celebrate cycling - explore Oakville’s beautiful cycle paths and trails

Bike Month is a celebration of biking! While the COVID-19 pandemic may have postponed Bike Month from its usual June spot to September, it has also provided us with the opportunity to get creative and think of new ways to celebrate cycling in our community. Bike Month is an opportunity for people to try riding a bike for the first time, learn new skills, or simply have fun and connect with nature. It’s a time to rekindle the youthful magic of exploring your neighbourhood by bike and sharing that joy with the next generation of bike riders.

Bike Month 2020 is going to be a little different from previous years, but there are still plenty of opportunities to get outside, be healthy, and ride a bike through Oakville’s hundreds of kilometres of cycle paths and trails.

The celebration gets rolling with a series of free cycling webinars, including Safe Cycling 101 for School-Aged Children, Basic Bike Maintenance, Family Biking and more. Register online using the Bike Month website. 

Dozens of other events are being planned that centre around having fun, gaining practical experience and knowledge, and getting some exercise with pedal power. Visit the Bike Month events calendar for an event near you. There is also a simple guide for organising a virtual or contact-free event of your own.
