Cycling and Trails Master Plan


Workshops on Wheels 

Join us for a fun ride – or walk! Explore new routes. Share your ideas on how we can encourage more people to choose to walk or cycle as we create a new Cycling and Trails Master Plan for Kitchener. Each ride is co-hosted by city staff and a local resident. All skill levels are welcome to participate. Each ride is five to ten kilometers with lots of rest stops and fun conversation with your neighbours along the way. 

No registration is required. Rain or shine. In extreme weather situations, please visit this webpage to see if the ride or walk is cancelled. Be sure to subscribe to Bike Kitchener email updates for cycling news and updates on the master plan.

About Kitchener’s new Cycling and Trails Master Plan

Kitchener has a solid foundation for active transportation enjoyed by many residents across the city. Our new Cycling and Trails Master Plan will serve as the catalyst for building a city where people willingly and joyfully choose active transportation for getting around. Community engagement is essential to creating the new master plan – please be involved and share your ideas! Over the next year, city staff will be reaching out all across the city to hear from people about how we can make Kitchener a great place to walk and bike.

The ultimate goal is to double the number of trips taken by walking and cycling every five years. To achieve that goal, it’s important to build a connected network and the master plan will identify the long-term investments required to build pedestrian and cycling infrastructure for recreational users, commuters and everyday transportation needs.
