Active living in Kingston Ontario

Get Ready for the Commuter Challenge and the Kingston Cycling Festival!

The Commuter Challenge will be happening in Kingston during the week of May 31-June 6. It is a friendly competition between Canadian cities and workplaces that encourages Canadians to leave their cars at home and use active and sustainable transportation, such as walking, cycling, transit, carpooling, vanpooling and teleworking. You can register yourself any time before the end of the challenge on the Commuter Challenge Website and start logging your sustainable commute to see what your tracked results and impacts are. Commuters are also encouraged to enjoy free Cycling Week Roll-in-Breakfasts throughout downtown between 7:30 and 9:30 each morning!

The Kingston Cycling Festival is happening on Sunday June 14th, from 11am – 2pm, at Rogers K-Rock Centre. This event will feature an opportunity to ride inside and outside the Rogers K-Rock Centre and teach adults and children about cycling safety and how to ride with confidence. There will be a chance to win kids and adult bicycles and accessories! Riders can also try BMX riding, experience on-road training, have their helmet and bicycle checked, learn the rules of the road, participate in workshops and so much more! There will be lots of fun and information going on, including a Kingston Gets Active obstacle course for the kids!

Don’t miss out the opportunity to participate in these two amazing events and become more active!
