June 28: Scarborough Cycling Summit

By TCAT

Do you live or work in Scarborough?

Are you passionate about a particular cycling or safety issue in your area?

If so, join others from across Scarborough in planning a cycling future for your neighbourhood at the upcoming Scarborough Cycling Summit.

Event Date:

Thursday, June 28, 2018 – 17:00 to 20:00

Event Location:

AccessPoint on Danforth (3079 Danforth Avenue, TorontoON)

We will start with some tasty snacks and a brief introduction to Cycle Toronto and the Toronto Centre for Active Transportation, who will share research on the challenges of suburban cycling.
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 so everyone has a chance to tackle three priority topics:

  1. Cycling Network 10 Year Plan: What does City Hall have in store for Scarborough?
  2. You Told Us: Build a 5-step action plan for the top project ideas from last year’s summit.
  3. Toronto Votes 2018: Help us raise cycling as an election issue in your community.

This event is part of a series that is intended to make it easier for new volunteers to get involved in shaping the growth of cycling culture in neighbourhoods all across our city. It is a chance to connect and coordinate with others who are engaged in cycling programming, or otherwise working to improve cycling in Scarborough.

Childcare will be provided in the same building, free of charge.

This special summit is part of the Scarborough Cycles project. It is co-presented by Cycle Toronto and the Toronto Centre for Active Transportation.
