Helping you get around actively is important to the City of Thunder Bay and similarly to cars, bikes also greatly benefit from designated parking.

Thunder Bay bike parking guidelines

We have created guidelines on bike parking, with the aim of helping cyclists and facilities understand how to create an environment suitable to keeping bikes secure and make cycling a more accessible activity.

The Bike Racks for Business program is presently unavailable as the program is undergoing an update to better serve the needs of active transportation users. Stay tuned for a relaunch of the program.
