Cycle | Ecology Action Centre


Cycling is a fun, healthy, active, cost effective, and environmentally friendly form of transportation.

 Interested in choosing cycling as a sustainable mode of transport?

Consider the following for the best cycling experience:

  • Keep your bike in good repair
  • Consider what is a comfortable distance for you
  • Plan your route- try a test-ride it on a quiet Sunday.
  • Wear a helmet
  • Wear a bright / light-coloured jacket
  • Use reflectors and night lights
  • Use a bell
  • Dress in layers
  • Purchase a strong bike lock
  • Install a basket, or rack and panniers for transporting goods


Have traffic/safety concerns?
