Setting the Agenda 2010
In the weeks since the Mayor announced that he would not be running for re-election, there has been ample speculation about potential Mayoral candidates. Missing from the speculation on the “who,” however, has been the “what.” We need a thorough and thoughtful discussion of the challenges that face Toronto in the next term of Council and the policy agenda and vision for our city. It is time to set the agenda for 2010.

Pedal Power
[Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE/UT)] BIKING FOR A BETTER TORONTO – Movie, Discussion, Action

Students on Seven (SOS) and TorontotheBetter present:

Pedal Power…From bicycle-mad Paris to rush-hour New York and the back alleys of Toronto, take a ride through the changing world of bike culture.

What do bikes and biking mean for Toronto in 2009, and how far are we on the way to becoming a healthier, more sustainable bike-friendly city?

Join co-director Chris Sumpton and Taodgh Burns from Toronto’s Community Bicycle Network for a lively discussion after the screening to see what’s happening, figure out what needs to be done and how to do it.

TBN’s Wednesday Wheelie Ride
The nature of the Wednesday day rides known as the “Wednesday Wheelies” might be the best-kept secret in the TBN. Wednesday Wheelies are social, tourist-level rides that cover routes similar to the popular Country Cruises, but which have the glorious advantage of roads, often busy with traffic on a Sunday, being nearly deserted mid-week.

Toronto Cyclists Union “Cinq à Sept”
This monthly event is intended to provide a space where bike union board, executive, management team, ward captains, volunteers, and members can come together and converse over a refreshing beverage. This event is not formal and is not a meeting. Rather, it is a space where the union can meet for the sake of meeting.
