Newmarket’s new and old cycling enthusiasts alike will soon have a new hub to enjoy the activity.
The Toronto-based Center for Active Transportation has announced that it will be launching Newmarket Cycles next month. The registered charity promotes cycling throughout the GTA and plans to offer group rides, DIY bicycle repair and more from a shipping container at NewMakeIt on 621 Timothy St.
Project manager Jennie Geleff said they hope to use their free programming to spur interest in cycling.
“We want to create a fun and welcoming space where anyone can explore biking for free. We work to build bike culture and remove barriers to biking,” she said. “You don’t have to have any knowledge or experiencing in biking to participate in our programs.”
