Due to precautionary measures surrounding COVID-19, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), City of Brampton, City of Mississauga, Town of Caledon, Region of Peel and BikeBrampton have made the collective decision to cancel the 2020 Bike the Creek event scheduled for Saturday June 13th.
We look forward to welcoming you all at the 2021 Bike the Creek virtual event in June.
This post was written on Jan 26th, before the events of COVID-19 unfolded. Your Bike the Creek planning committee is a model of collaborative partnership. The details of this post are being maintained below, as we look ahead to making our plans become a reality in 2021.
The main purpose of the Bike the Creek event is to encourage active transportation and to increase environmental awareness in our communities. The theme for this year’s event is Environmentally Sustainable Communities and we want this year’s Bike the Creek to be a celebration of environmental sustainable plans and practices.
We all know that the population growth in Peel Region continues putting tremendous pressure on our environment by reducing habitat for plants and animals, as well as producing large amounts of waste products that pollute our land and water and contribute to climate change.
Economic growth and environmental sustainability go hand in hand, and decisions made at the municipal have a tremendous impact on both our financial prosperity and our environmental quality of life.
The good news is that all three municipal governments in Peel Region are taking climate responsibility seriously!
By spending a few minutes at the Bike the Creek pavilions you can learn what our municipal governments and Toronto and Region Conservation Authority are doing as well as the role you can play in keeping our planet clean and green.
Encourage your co-workers, friends and family to come out and show your support for Environmentally Sustainable Communities in the Region of Peel.
See you there, from your Bike the Creek partners: Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), City of Brampton, Town of Caledon, City of Mississauga, Region of Peel and BikeBrampton!
It’s a FREE event!
