Cycling Safety

Byxe

From Saskatoon’s residential neighbourhoods, to the downtown and the scenic Meewasin Valley Trail, Saskatoon is full of spaces and places to ride! Before you hop on your bike, check out our Cycling Tips and Where to Ride to learn how to safely bike around town.

Cycling Tips and Where to Ride 

Check out the gallery for cycling tips and where to ride around Saskatoon!

Our bicycle network can be be found in our online mobile-friendly version of the Cycling Guide. The guide provides the same information as the printed version, including cycling routes, major community destinations, and key cycling tips. The guide also includes detailed transit stop information as well as current construction project and road restriction locations. If you would like a printable version to take with you on your ride, the 2020 Cycling Guide will soon be available and posted on this page! We’ll also have copies available at various locations following COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.

 

Bike and Ride the Bus

In an effort to make commuting easier for people who ride, Saskatoon Transit has bike racks on the front of all buses, accommodating up to two bikes. You can use the bus for part of your daily bike commute or hop on after a long ride around town. Plus, the bus can save you from a long walk if you get a flat. We hate those!

Bike Parking

 
Parking is an important need for cyclists as bikes need to be safely parked and locked while working, shopping, visiting, or playing. To minimize bicycle theft use a sturdy u-lock, locking both your bicycle frame and at least one wheel to parking posts or racks.
 
If your bicycle seat can be easily removed with a quick release lever, we recommend visiting your local bike shop to secure your seat to your bicycle frame.
 
Several things make good bicycle parking - where it is located, how much space is provided for each bicycle, as well as access around the rack and bicycles. These racks can be easily used with a wide variety of locks and other devices.
 
The City of Saskatoon provides several different bike racks throughout the city. If you’d like to see one in front of your business or workplace please email us.
 

Online Bicycle Registration

 
Recording the serial number and other identifying information on your bike could make the difference in getting it back if it is lost or stolen. Register your bike with the Saskatoon Police Service.  You'll be asked to provide the make, model, type, colour, and serial number. This information can assist police in helping recover a lost or stolen bike.
