Summer 2014: We are doing new research on an expanded Bike Host Cycling Mentorship Program. This program both helps integrate newcomers into the Toronto and introduces them to the convenience and low cost mobility cycling for transportation offers. This summer, with the support of the Metcalf Foundation, we have worked with CultureLink Settlement Services to develop a new geographic focus on the east end of downtown.
