Cycling Season Now Open

Newspaper and tablet

May 3, 2021 – Cycling season is now open with even more trails, cycling routes and infrastructure in Caledon.

“Cycling season is here and I couldn’t be more excited,” said Mayor Allan Thompson. “Staff have worked extremely hard to add more routes and infrastructure for residents and visitors to enjoy. Cycling is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, spend time with family and explore Caledon.”

To continue to add to the bronze level designation as a Bicycle Friendly Community (BFC), further investment has been made to introduce, update and upgrade cycling infrastructure around Caledon. These measures are also recommended in the Caledon Transportation Master Plan and supported by the Active Transportation Task Force. These include:

  • Increasing the amount of cycling routes available from 80km to 200km
  • Identifying specific roads for cycling – check out all on-road and off-road routes: caledon cycling routes
  • Installing of three new bike repair stands, now totaling four – locations are available online:
