Meet cycleWR

CycleWR is a new cycling coalition that advocates for cycling in Waterloo Region to be a safe, respected, convenient, and everyday mode of transportation for people of all ages and abilities.

Open Meeting

July 16, from 7:30–9:00 p.m. at the Berlin Bicycle Cafe.
701 Belmont Ave W
Everyone welcome. RSVP

Come learn about CycleWR, vote on some short-term goals, and then choose one of our current projects to work on (such as planning a public event, drafting a pledge for municipal election candidates, or defining a minimum grid for the region).

Need childcare at the meeting? Email us at and we’ll make it happen.

Our vision

We envision a Waterloo Region where people of all ages and abilities feel safe to commute to work, ride to school, run errands, and enjoy their neighbourhoods on their bicycles.

When more people cycle, the Region will be more lively, less congested, and healthier for everyone, no matter how they get around.

What we do

We amplify the voices of a diverse community, communicating a cohesive story about cycling needs to decision makers.

We promote cycling as an essential mode of transportation for all, advocating for the structural and cultural changes that will make this possible.

We celebrate the work of other cycling and active transportation organizations and our municipal governments, collaborating to shape policy and implement projects that benefit people who ride bicycles.
