The 2015 Ontario Bike Summit was our largest summit to date with 215 delegates in attendance. Fifty-nine (59) communities were represented from all 4 geographic regions of Ontario. A variety of stakeholders were in attendance to discuss cycling, including elected officials (municipal, provincial and federal), advocates, non profit groups, municipal and provincial staff, planning professionals and consultants, representatives from the business community, public health officials and tourism experts.



The event kicked-off with afternoon workshops on the Bicycle Friendly Communities program, followed by the distribution of Bicycle Friendly Community awards to 5 communities. As part of the Winter 2015 application round, we awarded our first Bicycle Friendly Community designation to a community in Northern Ontario (Thunder Bay - Bronze) and the province's second Gold designation (Toronto, up from Silver in 2012). Peterborough and Blue Mountains also moved up to a Silver designation and Newmarket received a Bronze.




Over the course of 1.5 days, delegates participated in lively discussions about cycling in Ontario. Highlights include:
