Building on the success of Bike Summit 2008,
which attracted over 180 attendees, TCAT is very pleased to announce
Bike Summit 2009 to take place in Toronto on May 28, 2009. With initial
sponsorship provided by the Bicycle Trade Association of Canada, the
Clean Air Partnership and the City of Toronto, TCAT will once again
take the lead planning and coordinating this event.
The Bike Summit is a one-day international policy conference to share
best practices for making communities great cycling environments.

award to an exceptional organization whose work raises the profile of
cycling or walking and its relationship to a high quality of urban
life. Come out to the party to find out who the inaugural winner is in
this new category.
