Free cycling seminars to enjoy Appleby Line trails

Spring is almost here and it’s time to get your bike in gear so you can ride all the great trails in Burlington like the one that crosses Appleby Line just south of Fairview. The paved trail runs from Burloak to Guelph Line.

In partnership with the Burlington Public Library and the Burlington Cycling Committee are offering seven free cycling seminars this spring starting March 24 to help you become a better rider

“City Council is investing in improving cycling infrastructure across the city,” said Mayor Rick Goldring. “These free seminars will encourage more people to trade their cars for bicycles by giving them the information and confidence they need to get out and enjoy our city on two wheels.”

This is the second year the committee is offering free seminars open to all ages. Seminars range from bicycle safety and basic bike maintenance seminars to learning about what’s hot for bike accessories and gear for every type of rider.

“We want to help Burlingtonians ride their bikes around the city safely and with confidence,” said Don Thorpe, Chair of the Burlington Cycling Committee, which is a volunteer advisory committee to City Council “Helping to educate riders of all ages on how to ride safely is a priority for us.”

Pre-registration is required with the Burlington Public Library by calling 905-639-3611, ext. 1321.
