Take the Youth Advisory Committee's Youth Cycling Habits Survey

July 12, 2022

To get more youth cycling, we need to understand the current travel patterns, motivations, and barriers to getting youth cycling.

What are the most significant barriers to cycling for youth? Is it the lack of safe infrastructure? Is it a lack of access to a working bike? Are there not enough secure bike parking facilities at schools? We don't fully know!

HUB Cycling's Youth Advisory Committee is working to fill this gap. We are working on compiling information on youth cycling habits to better understand specific priorities for our advocacy work. The committee has put together a survey, with separate versions for youth (aged 14-24), parents of youth, and post-youth (people who used to be youth).



Our Youth Advisory Committee is recruiting!

We are currently recruiting executive members of the team, including a secretary, treasurer, graphic designer, and other roles. Executive members are required to attend one executive meeting a month and spend about 3-5 hours on committee-related tasks per month outside of meetings. The roles have a one-year term, ending with the September to August school year. 

We want to include a wide range of diverse voices and perspectives—we especially encourage you to apply if you come from a racialized, marginalized, and/or resource-limited background.

Public meetings are currently set on the fourth Thursday of the month, from 6:30-8:00 PM. This is set to change moving forward to a date and time that works for everyone.
