Passion for significant cycling traffic growth

Providing services from strategic direction to planning cycling infrastructure, community engagement, promotion of cycling, business cases, and other services.

The Third Wave Cycling Group is a group of dedicated professionals from a variety of backgrounds with commonly shared experiences in cycling with vision and expertise in how to make communities cycling-friendly.

We believe that cycling and cycling combined with transit should be a viable transportation option for everyone. We believe that cycling should be safe and accessible for people of all ages and abilities, not just the brave few First Wave cyclists who revel in cycling in heavy traffic and the Second Wave cyclists who will take to bike lanes on busy streets.
