Scarborough Cycles – Access Alliance
Launched in 2015, Scarborough Cycles is now a program of Access Alliance in partnership with the City of Toronto.* You can find the Scarborough Cycles- Access Alliance website here.
Scarborough Cycles has three community bike hubs which are located at AccessPoint on Danforth, Lawrence-Orton, and Birchmount Bluffs Neighbourhood Centre. Our hubs offer access to bicycles, tools, do-it-yourself repair clinics, workshops, group rides, and civic engagement/mentorship opportunities for residents.
The program is part of the City’s Community Reduce & Reuse Programs, which reduce waste and build sustainable communities by:
- providing opportunities to reuse, share and repair items
- offering skills training and creating job and economic opportunities
- creating spaces for community members to gather.
This program promotes cycling culture and waste diversion by repairing bicycles that would have otherwise become scrap metal. More information about the City’s Community Reduce & Reuse Programs is available at toronto.ca/reduce-reuse.
