Cycle Kingston during COVID-19 Respecting physical distancing and other guidelines set by government and health authorities during the COVID-19 pandemic, Cycle Kingston has put most of our in-person community programs and activities on hold until further notice. For information on Gear Up! Recycled Bikes, go to our Facebook page. We will post updates on all our programs as the situation changes. Bicycling alone or with members of your household is a good way to stay physically active, but please do so safely and respect physical distancing guidelines. More information about precautions and COVID-19 can be found at www.kflaph.ca/en/healthy-living/novel-coronavirus.aspx. We’re all learning to adjust to life during this pandemic. Stay well and enjoy riding your bicycle!
Safe Cycling in Kingston (2013)
Annual General Meeting March 9, 2020 at 7pm
2019 saw our Cycling Ambassador program continue on a smaller scale, but still continuing to present the message of safe cycling to school children, youth and adults. We once again organized Cycling Week and led the Cycling Safety and Skills Camp at Queen's University, and we were awarded a grant from The Community Foundation of Kingston and Area to launch a new social enterprise, Bicycle Valet Kingston, providing secure bicycle parking at community events.
Our Gear UP Recycled Bikes social enterprise continued to grow and provide youth facing employment barriers with the place to learn practical skills and job readiness experience while keeping over 150 donated bicycle out of landfills and putting them back on the streets at an affordable cost.
Come hear more about what Cycle Kingston accomplished - thanks to many volunteers and partner agencies - at our upcoming Annual General Meeting. Enjoy some refreshments, and support a grassroots charity that has been informing safe cycling in Kingston for more than a decade. Here are the details:
