We’re excited about your interest in the development of cycle tourism in Ontario and in expanding the Ontario By Bike Network to your region or municipality.
The Ontario By Bike Network is currently offered in:
Niagara; Frontenac; Hamilton; Halton; Peel; York; Durham; South Eastern Ontario (RTO9); Manitoulin Island and LaCloche Foothills; Lanark County; Kawarthas-Northumberland (RTO8); Haliburton Highlands; Grey County; Toronto; Simcoe County; Renfrew County-Ottawa Valley; Haldimand and Norfolk County, Windsor-Essex County-Pelee Island, Oxford, Elgin, Lambton, London & Middlesex (RTO1); Chatham-Kent; the City of Ottawa; Muskoka and Parry Sound District; Northeast Ontario (RTO13A); County of Brant & City of Brantford; Waterloo Region; Prescott-Russell; North Central Ontario/Algoma Country (RTO13B); Northwest Ontario (RTO13C); Huron County; Perth County, St. Marys & Stratford.
When expanding the Ontario By Bike Network into new areas in Ontario, we aim to work within regional/municipal boundaries as closely as possible and Ontario’s Regional Tourism Organization boundaries where possible. In some cases of Network expansion, geographical boundaries are established to reflect various considerations. For example, these can be determined by host partnerships, as well as current and future cycling product offering and development. Consumer recognition of the proposed geographic area is also a determinate in establishing ‘Great Place to Cycle’ area name that is featured on the Ontario By Bike website.
If the Network currently is not administered in your area, local businesses cannot be certified and added to our network of over 900 bicycle friendly locations. To discuss program expansion and the administration of the Ontario By Bike Network’s certification program in your area, please send an email to info(at)ontariobybike.ca or call toll-free to 1-866-701-2774.
