Safe Cycling Circuit at Memorial Centre Farmers Market
July 27, 2023
When you come to the Memorial Centre Farmers Market this weekend, Sunday, July 30, bring
your bike and check out the Safe Cycling Circuit hosted by Cycle Kingston. It’s a fun way to learn
a few cycling skills that will leave participants feeling more confident behind those handlebars!
Cycle Kingston will be running the activity three times this summer: July 30th, August 13th and
August 27th at the Memorial Centre Farmers Market, which runs from 9:00am to 2:00pm.
“The objective of the Safe Cycling Circuit is to teach riders core cycling skills that will help them
prepare for road and trail riding,” says Cycling Ambassador Emily. Cycle Kingston strives to
educate the community on cycling safety, foster a safe bicycle culture, and ultimately increase
the number of people who ride bicycles.
“The Safe Cycling Circuit is designed for children and youth, but adults are also welcome to
check it out, especially if they are new to cycling in Kingston,” adds Emily.
Here are a few of the activities included in the cycling circuit:
- Entering traffic and road positioning
- Straight Line Riding
- One Handed Riding
- Hand Signals
- Glance Backs
“Cycling is a great way to get around and is very much aligned with the principles of the Market,”
says Emma Barken, Operations Manager. “We’re pleased to partner with Cycle Kingston for
three Sunday market days this summer.”
