Cycling Cog Toronto Group Ride

In case anyone hasn’t checked it out and/or signed up yet (it’s free), I thought I’d bring your attention to The Cycling Cog, and specifically, the first group ride of the Toronto Cyclist Group (which has 56 members, at this point). It is mostly through ravines and parks of the Don River system.

Wednesday, June 28th
7:30 p.m.
Warden Subway Station
(southeast corner of Warden & St. Clair)
Final Destination is St. Lawrence Market

If you’re in Toronto, try to meet up with the group (map of the route). I’m going to try and meet up with them somewhere in Taylor Creek Park, or perhaps when they come up from the Lower Don Trail.

Even if you’re not in Toronto, the ‘Cog is a great site you may want to sign up for… it’s based here in T.O., but is meant to serve as a community-building resource for the cycling committee no matter where you are.

Tell your friends, and help the Cycling Cog grow and become the great cycling site it can only be with lots of user participation.
