Wed, Aug. 11:

  • Wednesday Wheelie Ride
    • This week’s Wednesday Wheelie is a 71 or 86 km ride from Courtice through the Durham Drumlins to Bowmanville for lunch. Meet for an 8:30 a.m. departure at the Community Centre in Courtice. To get to Courtice, exit Hwy 401 eastbound at interchange 425, (C.R. 34/Courtice Rd.) Drive north just past Hwy 2 and turn left into the Courtice Community Centre. For more information call Bill Hannaford 416-482-2125.
  • Green Drinks Toronto
    • A jovial mix of environmental professionals and Torontonians interested in the environment + a few pints (or non-alcoholic drinks!) = A relaxed and agenda-free evening of enviro-meeting and greeting.

Sunday, Aug. 22:

  • RONA MS Bike Tour – Niagara
    • Tens of thousands of cyclists have taken to their bikes at the RONA MS Bike Tours. Some ride with friends, family, or form a team with coworkers. Some are looking for a new fitness challenge or a different way to see Ontario’s beautiful countryside. No matter why they ride, all participants in the Tours come away with the knowledge that they are making a real difference in the lives of people affected by multiple sclerosis.
  • Cyclebetes Mississauga Community Ride
    • As our National Relay Team passes through cities and towns across Canada, Cyclebetes will be incorporating local community rides. This is where all the locals of all ages and all riding abilities can join in the ride, whether it be for 2km or 200km. We have celebrations and family fun in the park for the kids, along with speeches, prizes and more!

A great video introduction to U of T’s BikeChain from Global News (except there’s an ad that runs before it): ‘Bikechain’ was created in 2005 as a student project serving the University of Toronto student community. This DIY bicycle repair shop is based out of the St. George campus and is open to everyone on […]

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 […]
