"Welcome Cyclists" is a network of hotels, B&Bs, restaurants, and other establishments which cater to people travelling on their bicycles in Ontario. To becomes part of the network, businesses have to guarantee to provide a certain level of services for cyclists (e.g. hotels or B&Bs have to provide a covered and secure bike storage area).
“Welcome Cyclists” only recently started to operate as a province-wide network. There is no charge for businesses to join the network, or for cyclists to use the service to identify bicycle friendly hotels, B&Bs, restaurants, or other establishments. It appears to be modelled after Quebec’s "Bienvenue cyclistes" program, which has been around for a number of years and proven to be very popular with people travelling on their bicycles.
