Integrating BikeWrx into the Brampton Community

BikeBrampton integrates the Brampton Bike Hub and Caledon Bike Hub BikeWrx programs into the community through partnerships. This encourages new and existing cyclists to consider riding. Learning basic bike repair skills empowers people to ride for transportation and to venture longer distances. Having help with route planning removes another barrier to cycling.

Sonia demonstrated how to load a bike onto Brampton Transit bus. Electrical bus on display at Earth Day.
Success! Trying a new skill with support and without pressure makes using a bike for “first-mile-last-mile” transit trips much more possible.

Pedalwise Group Rides

Pedalwise group ride in March. Said ‘goodbye’ to former protege who was moving out of town.
When the chain came off and was jammed next to the frame, these Pedalwise mentors (2 of whom were formerly proteges), came to the rescue and freed the chain! BikeWrx training works!
Pedalwise group ride to catch up with visiting former protege. A flat tire does not slow down this experienced group for long!
