Bike the Creek Environmentally Sustainable Communities26 Jan 2020, Posted by Brampton Cycling, Cycling Benefits - Environment, Region of Peel Cycling in
Registration for Bike the Creek 2020 will soon open. 1,000 participants enjoyed perfect weather last year. Although we can’t control weather, we can assure you that this year’s event will have more ride choices including longer and shorter options, along with the usual great food, great prizes and great fun!
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 are doing as well as the role you can play in keeping our planet clean and green.
Next week you will be able to register for Bike the Creek 2020. It’s a free event!
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!
