Record group of cyclists gathered in downtown Brampton Garden Square for 4th annual Bike to Work Day on May 30th, kicking off Bike Month. Downtown BIA joined City of Brampton, Region of Peel, BikeBrampton and Brampton Transit in partnering to plan the event for enthusiastic cyclists. Group-led rides from 6 starting points encouraged cyclists to try commuting to downtown Brampton.

Mayor Linda Jeffrey spoke of an exciting future for cycling in Brampton. Peel Police Chief Jennifer Evans reminded us of rules of the road for cyclists and motorists.
