Cycling has been shown to have both health and environmental benefits. As an exercise, it improves physical and mental health, but also serves as an active transportation alternative for short trips, reduces car dependency and, therefore, lowers carbon emissions.
The Community Bike Centre (Spring 2018)
The Community Bike Centre is located in the North West area of Toronto. It's mission is to support a growing cycling community and further promote this form of green transportation in York University, University Heights, Jane-Finch, Westminster-Branson and Downsview communities. The Centre provides free cycling education, low-cost bike rentals, and DIY bike repair and expert mechanic services.
