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.

Meet & Greet

We’re hosting our first meet and greet on April 29! We’ll be at Open Sesame, 220 King Street West, in downtown Kitchener from 2:00 to 5:00 pm to talk with you about a bikeable Waterloo Region.

Drop by to meet our growing cycling community in the Region and find out how you can get involved in the #CyclistsofWR campaign, making cycling an election issue, and more.

Light refreshments will be served. This is a family-friendly event. Open Sesame is a physically accessible space, with one single occupancy gender-neutral bathroom.

Please share this with anyone you know who might be interested, and register for this free event to let us know you’re coming by!

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.
