We thank the Advance Brampton Fund for providing a grant. This project aligned with Council’s priorities of “Brampton is a Healthy & Safe City”, and “Brampton is a Mosaic”.
The Contest had 3 Objectives:
1. Bring a social media buzz and excitement to cycling in Brampton.
2. Engage the arts community in the Community Cycling Program and attract new program participants.
3. Allow Brampton residents who are not regular cyclists to experience the pleasures of cycling through art.
