Bike Events This Saturday

I received a cool email from the city this morning, reminding me of the two cool events happening tomorrow.

1. Cyclists Wanted for Quay to the City Opening
Saturday, August 12th at 9:00 a.m

From August 11th to 20th in what may be the largest art installation ever in Toronto, car traffic will be replaced with bike lanes and a kilometer-long stretch of 12,000 red geraniums and a picnic lawn the length of almost ten football fields. Two four-storey sculptures built (with more than 600 bicycles) will highlight the temporary new section of the popular Toronto section of the Waterfront Trail.

On Saturday, August 12th at 9:00 a.m., the Toronto Waterfront Revitalization Corp is inviting all cyclists to come down to the waterfront to help officially open this extension of the Waterfront Trail. They are hoping to get anywhere from 50-100 cyclists at this event and would like everyone to meet at the bike arch at York and Queens Quay at 9 am. They will have a ribbon across the arch and would like to have all of the cyclists ride through it.

I’ll be there – look for my blue “I Bike T.O.” shirt and say hi!


2. Hauler! Moving Stuff with Bikes

Saturday, August 12th, 2006 @ Alexandra Park (Bathurst & Dundas) 12pm to 4pm

Join us to celebrate people moving stuff with bikes! Come down to Alexandra Park for everything you ever wanted to know about cargo bikes and bike trailers. No more bags on handle bars or borrowing someone?s car to haul home heavy items – let your bike do the work for you! The event will be held on Saturday, August 12th from 12 to 4pm at Alexandra Park (Bathurst & Dundas) in downtown Toronto. It will be a fun filled day with events for all ages highlighting the wonders of hauling stuff by bike.

Sign up early for workshops on:

1pm – Building your own bucket panniers!
2pm – Starting a bicycle based business!
3pm – Building your own bike trailer!

Bring your own cargo bike or trailer and get a FREE t-shirt!

I’m going to do my best to make it to this one too. While I don’t have a trailer, I think people that use them are awesome.

NEWS: Why not make biking on sidewalks legal in the suburbs?

I tend to agree with the main concept here… that suburban arterials need bike infrastructure badly… but cars go SO fast on those roads, it’s impossible to feel safe even in a bikelane that is just paint. A physical barrier (curb, bollards, etc) is needed, or an cycling addition on the side of sidewalks.  Many […]

OH YEAH! How I learned to love cycling my way to work

I’ll be honest, and I hate to admit this, but I used to be that person that perpetually ran five minutes late—to everything. I’d do my best to be timely, but in many circumstances, I just couldn’t seem to make it to my commitments on time. A few years ago my brother became a bicycle […]
