Tuesday, Jan. 19
Bicycle Friendly Business Awards

7:00 PM to 11:00 PM
The awards recognize that cyclists help in making Toronto a greener and healthier place to live, work, and play. Cycling conscious businesses help to reduce traffic congestion and smog in our city. All businesses that support cycling help the City to achieve one of the goals of the Toronto Bike Plan to double the number of bicycle trips made in the city by the year 2011.

Tuesday, Jan. 19
CBN Workshop – Wheel Building II

7:00 PM to 10:00 PM
The wheel building workshops will teach with standard wheels in a 3-cross lacing pattern. We will cover spoke calculations, lacing the wheels, truing and tensioning. Participants must take both classes.

Wednesday, Jan. 20
CBN Workshop – Bike Repair: Bearings and Wheels

7:00 PM to 10:00 PM
The class outline is structured and focused to cover as much as possible in a relatively short amount of time. As a beginner to bike repair, we expect you will learn a lot and come away feeling much more comfortable with the workings of your machine. It is also an ideal refresher for someone who has taken a class in the past, or has some limited, but spotty experience. You will almost certainly learn some new techniques and tricks.

And, hey… wouldn’t it be cool if someone emailed you something like the list above every Monday with all the upcoming cycling events in Toronto?  That would be SOOOO cool!  I wish someone would think of that.  Oh wait… I already did.
