2007 season opens for Gay West Bicycle Club

Other than the cycling groups over at the Toronto Bicycle Network, the Gay West Bicycle Club may just be the largest in Toronto, but I don’t know for sure. What I do know for sure is that the GWBC is gearing up for 2007:

Gay West Bicycle Club is the only gay, lesbian and bisexual dedicated bicycling club in the province of Ontario. Now entering it’s fourth year in 2007 with close to 100 registered members.

They have their first ride of 2007 planned for 12-3 PM on April 29th. Be sure and let anyone you think may be interested know:

“First ride for 2007 season takes place on Sunday April 29-Noon until 3PM” We start off at Sunnyside Pavilion then make our way up the Humber River to just south of Lawrence Ave, where the Hurricane Hazel monument is located. For those who don’t know what Hurricane Hazel was, surf over to www.hurricanehazel.ca. We then make our way west along the Eglinton Ave bike path, south along the bike lanes of Royal York Avenue in Etobicoke, through the ever so posh Kingsway Village area, then back east via several side streets. We’ll then gather for an après-ride mix and mingle somewhere in the west end of the city.

The GWBC are also the co-ordinators of the Annual Toronto Pride Ride happening on Sunday June 17th.

Out of town visitors are welcome to join any of the club meets.

Please RSVP to gwbikeclub@hotmail.com if you will be attending.

MAPS! Helping cyclists avoid smoggy routes in Toronto and Montreal

  Amazing tool!  Played with it a long time.  Very telling that when you turn off the street map, high pollution levels still indicate where roads (and especially highways and the airport) are, and where the ravines (without highways) are. It is essentially a Google Map with an extra layer representing the average concentration of […]

NEWS: Bloor Bike Lanes Pilot Should Be a Council No-Brainer. Here’s Why It’s Not. 

An excellent piece in Torontoist about why a bike lane pilot designed to collect data about benefits/detriments and overwhelming supported by the community is getting static from politicians: There really should have been little to no debate about this 2.5 kilometre bike lane pilot project running along Bloor Street West from Shaw Street to Avenue […]
