Winter Commute Month (WCM)
It's Winter Commute Month! Commuting is different this winter than last, but outdoor activity is just as important. Make sure to get outside (distanced and safely) for your fresh air and exercise this February.

Take the Winter Commute Month Pledge for a chance to win 1 of 3 $100 VISA Gift Cards.

We will not be hosting an in-person Winter Bike Day this year, but signups are still open on the website to pledge to ride! Don't forget to add a point for Hamilton while you're there (We're currently holding the GLOBAL lead)!

Check out Hamilton's newest cycling map! We’ve borrowed from transit system “spider map” design to create this schematic cycling system map. While not scale-accurate, it is an excellent resource for telling what connects where for high-level route planning. Find the full-detail PDF available on our website!

COVID Alert App
Have you downloaded Canada's COVID-19 app yet? The app can let people know of possible exposures before any symptoms appear, while protecting your privacy. The more people who have it, the easier it is to track exposures, the safer we all are. If you haven't already, please consider taking a few minutes to download the app onto your device.
