New Events – SPIN, Waterfront Tour, and Lakeshore Safe Routes to School

We’ve just added some new events to the Events Calendar, and I thought we’d post about them for you:

Tues, Feb. 8 – Lakeshore Planning Council Safe Routes to School

We are meeting to prepare our presentation for the John English P.S. Parents Committee. This is an opportunity to get a safe routes program into the public school system.

The meeting is open to anyone wishing to advocate for safe bike riding to schools or anyone interested in cycling issues in Ward 6.


Mar. 15-27 – SPIN, by Evalyn Parry

Through a series of songs played live on a vintage bicycle, SPIN recounts a theatrical cycle of stories about bikes, women and liberation. Inspired by the incredible true tale of Annie Londonderry, the first woman to ride around the world on a bicycle in 1894.  SPIN blends theatre, music and technology in a unique tribute to the bicycle as muse, musical instrument and agent of social change.

July 2-9 – The Great Waterfront Trail Adventure

A fully supported recreational bike ride on Ontario’s Waterfront Trail. Visit all 41 communities connected together by the 730 Waterfront Trail stretching along the Canadian Shores of Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River. Ride though wetlands, white pine forest stands, fields, meadows and vibrant cities and quaint heritage towns. Tour carries luggage from town to town while you ride. Communities warmly welcome participants at rest stops and overnight stays. This is not a fundraiser but there is a registration fee to cover operational costs.

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… […]
