Cycling in Charlottetown

bike week 2022

The City of Charlottetown is striving to reduce fossil fuel dependency and to promote active, healthy lifestyles for residents. Cycling is a great way to do both of these things and that is why we want to create a culture of active transportation in our City. 

In recent years we have added more bike racks around the City, promoted cycling safety with bike rodeos, developed a cycling map for Charlottetown, created the Charlottetown Cycling Handbook, and regularly celebrate cycling through annual events and contests.

Check out our brand new Charlottetown Cycling Handbook! The handbook includes information on why cycling is important and how to get the most out of your bike rid. It also contains the regulations that need to be followed on PEI as well as tips for proper cycling safety and etiquette.

Additionally, our Bike Map showcases some great cycling route options to experience the best biking the City has to offer, Bike Friendly Businesses where cyclists can get special offers and discounts when they visit on their bike, and more.
