The photography exhibition is paired with research and programming highlights from the Scarborough Cycles project. As part of Scarborough Cycles, two community bike hubs were opened in Scarborough in 2016, and offered cycling-supportive programming, including Bike Host. Researchers also investigated the barriers faced by suburban cyclists and uncovered some surprising opportunities for cycling in Scarborough.
If you are unable to join us on January 30th, you can visit the exhibition any time between Saturday January 28th and Friday February 3rd, 2017.
Join Cycle Toronto for our annual Coldest Day of the Year Ride on Saturday, February 4th!
