Get out and cycle Ontario!

Get around your community

Paths and routes can help you cycle where you need to go.

Across the province, communities are improving cycling routes to make it even easier for you to get around on your bike.

Cycling-friendly communities

Through the Ontario Municipal Commuter Cycling Program, we’re doubling our investment in projects that make it easier for people to cycle to work, school and around their communities. $94 million will be used to build bike lanes and support other local cycling projects, as part of our Climate Change Action Plan.

A province-wide cycling network

Plans are underway to develop a province-wide cycling network to connect communities and destinations across Ontario. We’ve identified a network of primary cycling routes across the province using input from stakeholders, communities and the public.

We will be working with our partners to develop an implementation plan.

Reports and strategies

Our 20-year plan for cycling

#CycleON: Ontario’s Cycling Strategy is a route map to promote the growth of cycling across the province over the next 20 years. A big part of our plan is focused on making it safe and convenient for you to cycle every day.

Action Plan 2.0

This plan outlines the specific actions we will take to promote cycling and cycling safety.

It focuses on the five key areas of:

  • designing healthy, active and prosperous communities
  • improving cycling infrastructure
  • making highways and streets safer
  • promoting cycling awareness and behavioural shifts
  • increasing cycling tourism opportunities

Action Plan 2.0 is the latest installment in the series of action plans for #CycleON: Ontario’s Cycling Strategy. We release Action Plans every five years.
