Bike Month is a celebration to encourage individuals across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area to cycle, learn new riding skills, and connect with new people at organized events. Throughout the month, TS will partner with Point A, a sustainable commuting consultation company, to challenge the community to get on their bike and discover their neighbourhood – on campus or at home. In particular, TS’ promotion of Bike Month aims to encourage contributions to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by promoting commuting to campus to reduce the demand for parking at York University by increasing awareness of alternative sustainable methods of transportation.
