Community Bike Network

CBN is a non-profit organization that promotes community cycling initiatives within the City of Toronto. They refurbish donated bicycles and offer space and tools, at a greatly reduced rate, to practise and learn bike mechanics for beginners and experts alike. They also rent bikes they have refurbished, cargo trailers and offer ‘green’ city tours for those wanting to get to know Toronto’s renewable energy landscape. Importantly, they also promote a Toronto Police-run bike registration service, to safeguard people’s bicycle details.
