If your bike isn't working properly you can bring it to our BikeWrx drop-in centre, 50 Sunny Meadow Blvd. Unit 108 on Wednesday evenings between 6:30-8:00pm. There you can borrow tools and get help from a certified bike mechanic to fix your bike yourself. You can also attend a basic bike mechanics course and receive a certificate of participation! BikeWrx access is free to registered Pedalwise participants. You may need to pay a small fee for necessary replacement parts.
If you don’t have a bike, let us know. We will try to fit you with one from our bicycle library. Bicycle use is free but a $40 refundable deposit is required to ensure its safe return to the library when you are finished using it.
We want to see how our Pedalwise program changes your attitudes and transportation habits as you become more confident with riding your bike around Brampton.

Your mentor will help collect your trip information. Your trip information is really important as it will be used in decisions aimed at making Brampton a more bicycle friendly community.
