Eco-Counter and the Ontario Bike Summit – 10 years growing up together

We have celebrated a couple of milestones recently.

A few weeks ago marked the five year anniversary of our first ever Eco-Display Classic bike counter installation! Since 2013, we’ve installed Display counters all over the world and Eco-Counter’s Display range has become a revered emblem of a community’s support for cycling.

April also marked the tenth anniversary of the Ontario Bike Summit, the premier cycling conference in Ontario. Hosted by Share the Road Cycling Coalition, OBS is a forum for cycling stakeholders across the province – Eco-Counter has proudly attended every one of them!

This year’s theme, “Looking Back and Rolling Forward“, allowed us to reflect upon just how much the Ontario Bike Summit and Eco-Counter have grown together.
