Stop Driving

Pedaling for Change


The Toronto Cyclists Union aims to be this city's first membership-driven cycling advocacy group, working towards creating a sustainable city by working within the community to affect positive change for Toronto's pedal-powered citizens.

The Union will be holding a free Cycling Advocacy Workshop at City Hall next Sunday (April 13) from 11 AM to 4 PM. The workshop will be geared towards helping Toronto residents improve cycling conditions in their neighbourhoods, and will also give tips on navigating local political networks effectively in order to be a force of positive change in this city.
