All riders out for the Kingston Bike Rally! Show your support for safe riding streets in Kingston as we all meet at Skeleton Park and ride down Princess Street as one big party.

Let’s ride together! Cyclists, wheelchair riders, skateboarders, rollerbladers, one-wheelers, e-bikers, and walkers alike! When we work together, Kingston can become a safer and more accessible space for all of us.

This event is organized by the Kingston Coalition for Active Transportation who has been helping to transform Kingston for more than a decade.

Event details

  • Meet friends locally and converge at Skeleton Park (McBurney Park) at 3PM. (see map)
  • Bike or ride together down Princess St. and other downtown streets ending at Confederation Park sometime between 3PM-4PM.
  • No need to register in advance, just show up and ride any way you like.
  • If you miss us, show up at Confederation Park between 3PM-4PM and meet us all there.

Safety first

  • Please wear a mask and stay 2 metres apart.
  • As this ride is explicitly for all ages and those with multiple abilities, the ride together will be relatively slow, think more like a parade
  • We will have volunteer ‘street chaperones’ in front, behind, and at every major intersection wearing safety vests to block cars to make sure everyone is happy, safe, and together.

Help us promote

Host a local meet-up

  • Organize a meet-up in your local neighbourhood and converge with the rest of us at Skeleton Park. Let us know if you’re hosting a meet-up and we’ll let others know it’s happening.

Rain date will be Sunday, October 3rd at the same time

Kingston Bike Rally October 2

What is Active Transportation?

Active transportation refers to any form of human powered travel: walking, cycling, wheeling, in-line skating or skateboarding.

There are many ways to engage in active transportation, whether it is walking to the bus stop or cycling to school/work.

Who we are

Kingston Coalition for Active Transportation (KCAT) is comprised of community members from a variety of backgrounds who are passionate about active transport. We believe that in order to become Canada’s most sustainable city, Kingston needs to embrace alternative modes of transportation and encourage citizens to become less car dependent. We partner with different stakeholder groups around the city to advocate for the implementation of evidence-based active transportation initiatives.
