How the City's Cycling Committee is Celebrating Bike Month 
June is Bike Month and the City of Timmins’ Cycling Committee wants to encourage more residents to get out and explore their neighbourhood by bike. Not only is it a clean mode of transportation, but biking improves physical fitness, creates safer roads, and can boost a city’s economy and talent retention. Cities across Canada are looking to expand their biking infrastructure and the City’s Cycling Committee is making sure Timmins stays on top of the trend.

This summer, two projects undertaken by the Cycling Committee will be completed, both of which help Timmins become more bikeable, or safe and suitable for cyclists of all ages. The multi-use path on Airport Rd. will be paved from Lamminen Ave. to Riverpark Rd., finishing up the extension added last summer. Dedicated bike lanes will also be added to Theriault Blvd. and Jubilee Ave. West. The addition of the bike lanes, approved by council on April 5, will improve visibility of cyclists through a busy school zone, making it safer for kids to bike to school.

One way that residents can celebrate Bike Month is by taking to the trails. The Cycling Committee has provided a list of cycling etiquette for trail use online at There are also handy tips for cycling safety and an interactive map that shows bike rack locations around the city. Learn more at:
