Cycling Infrastructure and Trails

Great Waterfront Trail Ride 2018 from Ajax to Quebec

Cycling is an active, healthy and growing form of recreation. It increasingly provides another transportation choice for residents; helping to ease congestion on our overburden roads.

Lanes and trails provide connectivity with the trail system that now extends from the waterfront north to the Duffins, Millers, and Carruthers Creek valleys.

It also provides links to other transportation infrastructure such as the Go Transit station which continues to increase its cycling storage and a lock-up system.

Ajax has achieved the designation as a Silver level Bicycle Friendly Community and is a leader in providing safer streets in both Durham and the Province of Ontario.

Trails and cycling lanes are funded from several sources including development charges, the federal gas tax, and grants.  A relatively small amount of funding comes from property taxes.
