Fall Cycling Mentorship Program

CultureLink Health and Recreation News

The Mississauga Cycles project is thrilled to announce a Mentorship Program this fall in both Mississauga and West Toronto! In this program, newcomer residents (“mentees”) are matched with residents (“mentors”) who live in their community.

After receiving online training, newcomer participants are loaned a quality bicycle, helmet and lock and take part in rides with their Mentor to enjoy the fall season.

There will also be online workshops on trip planning and bike repair as well as group rides every month! We ask that all participants take part in a minimum of three activities total, which can be any combination of mentor-mentee rides, online workshops and group rides.

Registration for the fall program is well underway!

There are about 30 bikes still available for newcomers and we will need 15 Mentors to match with our newcomer participants, too. Maybe it will be YOU! Get involved and register at the links below – the deadline has been extended to October 29th!

Do you know someone else who is interested? Feel free to share these program posters!

The Fall Newcomer Cycling Mentorship Program is made possible through funding provided from The Public Health Agency of Canada working with the Immigrations Services Society of BC, in partnership with CultureLink, HUB Cycling and the Ecology Action Centre.
