Cycling Events This Week: Feb. 22 – 28

Happy Monday everyone!  What a beautiful sunny weekend we just had… hopefully you had a chance to get outside on 2 wheels sometime to enjoy the sunshine.

Here are bike-related events going on this coming week, for your schedule-planning pleasure. :)

You can always find this info or events far into the future on the always updating Events page.

Tuesday, Feb. 23

  • CBN Workshop – Build Your Own Truing Stand
  • 7:00 – 10:00 PM
  • 761 Queen Street West (map)
  • For people who want to “true” their own wheels (make sure they are straight), a stand comes in handy.  Learn how to make one from the Community Bicycle Network
  • $30 + GST

Wednesday, Feb. 24

  • Trinity Bellwoods Multi-Use Path Open House
  • 4:00 – 8:00 PM
  • Trinity C.R.C, 155 Crawford St. (map)
  • The public is invited to attend an open house to discuss proposed upgrades to the existing multi-use path in Trinity Bellwoods Park.

Wednesday, Feb. 24

  • Community Bicycle Network Workshop: Bike Repair – Brakes and Gears
  • 7:00 – 10:00 PM
  • 761 Queen Street West (map)
  • 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.
  • $30 + GST


Friday, Feb. 26

  • Critical Mass Toronto
  • 6:00 – 8:00 PM
  • Bloor & Spadina (map)
  • An event that takes place on the last friday of every month in cities all over the world.  Critical Mass is at different times a rally, a protest, a party, and a community that advocates for a bicycle’s right to use public streets.

NEWS: A Complete List of Bloor Bike Lane Articles

After 4 decades (!) of Toronto considering the possibility of bike lanes on Bloor, Toronto City Council overwhelmingly voted (38-3) in favour of a 1 year pilot to collect data and evaluate a 2 km stretch of Bloor with bikelanes. I think a lot of people were surprised at just how lopsided the vote was… […]
