The Markham Public Library is making it possible for everyone to enjoy the experience of riding a bike. Kids and families alike can access a bigger bike than they have, a different type of bike from what they have…or a bike, period if they do not have one.

Many of us remember the experience of getting a new bike as children, or a hand-me-down bike…or wanting a bike and never getting one.

Well those days are now coming to an end and need not repeat themselves as the MPL is providing the new, different or any bike experience at all to families.

Partnering with Markham Cycles, the MPL is helping to build a cycling culture geared towards reducing gas emissions in the city. Markham Cycles, a nonprofit, has already created a community bike hub at Milliken Mills Community Centre.

Local residents will be given access to bicycle and tools at Do-It-Yourself drop-in bike repair tutorials. They will also be offering workshops on different cycling subjects, mentorships, loans and more.

Just visit the Milliken Mills Community Centre & Library near the basketball courts, Wednesdays from 3:30-6:30 and Saturdays from 12:00-3:00pm.
