For tourism industry partners, the Ontario By Bike works to develop and promote cycle tourism in Ontario. The established business network is a program certifying and promoting bicycle friendly businesses and cycle tourism in a growing number of regions across Ontario. The Network is open to accommodations, food services, attractions, cycling related businesses and organizations interested in cycle tourism. The Ontario By Bike™ Network is launched in each region with an informative workshop, after which local businesses may register on-line, at no charge, to participate and ultimately reach the growing number of cycle tourists in Ontario. There are currently over 1,500 businesses certified as bicycle friendly, in regions spanning Ontario.
In January 2014, the Network was rebranded as the Ontario By Bike™, after having been formerly known as The Welcome Cyclists Network. For more information on the rebranding click here.
