Bike-Vanier is a free recycled-bike lending program which runs during summer time.


BIKE-VANIER lends recycled and repaired bikes in order to make bike riding accessible to everyone, especially for low-income individuals and families.  Group bike rides are also organized throughout the various bike paths so that participants can discover the local resources. These rides are also organized to encourage family outings.  Bike-Vanier is based on the Vanier community's environmental values (recycling and green transportation). 

Bike-Vanier activities:

  • Partners with other Vanier community groups to hold Vanier Vélo Fest;
  • Receives donations of gently used bikes and makes them road-ready;
  • Loans bikes to residents of Vanier;
  • Loans bikes to Vanier's day-camp programs for children and youth;
  • Sponsors monthly outdoor workshops on bike repair for the community and a "know your bike" workshop for youth;
  • Promotes community responsibility and safe cycling in Vanier.
