Job Posting: Scarborough Cycles Project Coordinator

Do you have a passion for sharing your love of bicycles and encouraging more people to ride? The Toronto Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT), in partnership with Cycle Toronto, Toronto Cycling Think & Do Tank, and CultureLink, has launched an exciting new project called Scarborough Cycles: building bike culture beyond downtown. We are hiring a Project Coordinator to administer the program in Scarborough, conduct outreach, and organize events.

Funded by the Metcalf Foundation’s Cycle City program, the goal of Scarborough Cycles is to build a constituency and culture in support of cycling in Scarborough, an area underserved in terms of cycling infrastructure and lacking in transportation options. With 30% of Toronto’s landmass, 24% of its residents, and half a million cyclable trips (trips under 5 km) per day, Scarborough has only one bicycle sales and service facility. Scarborough Cycles has four goals: 1) create and disseminate new knowledge about cycling in the suburbs; 2) build capacity among local agencies, institutions and individuals to support cycling; 3) address barriers and create new cyclists; and 4) engage with residents and stakeholders about the benefits of improved cycling infrastructure.

Scarborough Cycles will identify two areas in Scarborough with strong potential for increased cycling and use targeted interventions in these areas to build participation in cycling for transportation. We will develop partnerships with two local organizations interested in becoming a “Bike Hub”. Through these hubs we will offer access to bicycles and tools, cycling education workshops and repair clinics, cycling mentorship activities and rides, bikeability audits, and civic engagement and neighbourhood strategy workshops.
