Help elevate cycling advocacy in North York! 

This Summit will take place on June 14 at the Spring Garden Church, a 5-7 minute walk from Sheppard Station.

Do you live or work in the the orange zone on this map of Toronto? Are you passionate about a particular cycling or safety issue in your area? If so, join others from across North York in planning a cycling future for your neighbourhood at Cycle Toronto's upcoming North York Cycling Advocacy Summit.

We will start with some tasty snacks and a brief introduction to Cycle Toronto and our Ward Advocacy program.

From there we will hear a summary of some of the big ideas suggested at last year's summit, after which you'll have a chance to vote for your favourite projects.

Next up, we will divide into break-out groups to tackle two priority topics:

  1. Cycling Network 10 Year Plan: What does City Hall have in store for North York?
  2. Toronto Votes 2018: Help us raise cycling as an election issue in North York.

The North York Cycling Advocacy Summit is part of a series of events that we host across Toronto. The summits are intended to help local residents to get involved neighbourhood projects, the design of our streets, and the growth of cycling culture in neighbourhoods all across our city. This event will be a chance to connect and coordinate with others who are engaged in cycling advocacy, or otherwise working to improve the environment for cycling in North York.
