a photo depicting cycling in Hamilton About The Hamilton Cycling Committee


The Hamilton Cycling Committee is an advisory committee to the City of Hamilton Public Works Department.

We are comprised of citizens - including both recreational and commuter cyclists. What we have in common is a desire to make cycling safe, fun and easy in Hamilton.  Auto drivers are reminded to "Share the Road".  To further promote this message stop by any of the
bike shops in Hamilton and pick up a free "Share the Road" car magnet to spread the message (while quantities last). 

The Hamilton Cycling Committee would appreciate input from the community to determine "What value this car magnet program has for you?" The committee is also curious to know "Where and how often do you see these car magnets?"

Other communities are welcome to use the image for similar promotions.  Here it is, but use the image at the bottom of this webpage as it is at a higher resolution (100KB).

Some of the objectives of the Hamilton Cycling Committee's mandate are:
  • To provide a liaison between cyclists and the City
  • To advise staff and Council on bicycling facilities and issues
  • To advance cycling as a feasible mode of transport in Hamilton
  • To promote cycling safety.  Click here for a PDF of a postcard that highlights cycling safety tips for both cyclists and motorists. Also check out the "safety" tab on the left for more tips.
The Hamilton Cycling Committee meets the first Wednesday of every month at 5:30 p.m.at Hamilton City Hall, room 192. We welcome those enthusiastic about cycling to drop by and attend one of our meetings.
