A brief description of the institution’s bicycle program, including the year the award was achieved and/or renewed:

Mohawk College is a Share the Road Silver Bicycle Friendly Business. Through our many bike programs, we help promote alternative transportation. We have a Bike Loan Program that has 13 bikes to loan to Mohawk College students and staff for up to 3 days. The Fennell Campus is also home to a 48-spot secure bike parking facility. This facility is available to all Mohawk staff and students who cycle to campus. We also promote safe cycling on campus but providing 3 bike repair stations and offering free bike tune-ups during Bike Month. In addition, we recently launched Poparide, a ride sharing platform for Mohawk students to get to campus. https://www.sharetheroad.ca/awards-database-p158825
