Reminder: Group Commute Pancake Breakfast is on Monday

Click for larger map

 

Just a reminder in case you don’t know… the Annual Group Commute to a Free Pancake Breakfast at City Hall runs on Monday morning (May 30th).  Groups of cyclists meet at set points around the city (list and map below) and bike downtown – all meeting up at City Hall… where the City gives us pancakes and coffee and stuff. Michael Holloway also blogged about this on his FreeWheel blog.

This doesn’t really help people that bike to work in other parts of the city, but good nonetheless.

Here are complete details, courtesy of the City of Toronto site, and a complete list of BikeMonth events are on the City’s calendar, and BikingToronto has a BikeMonth section too to help expand the good work of city staff – complete with Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and RSS feed resources.:

The Group Commute was the event that started it all. Bike Month began as bike to work day, and the annual Group Commute and free pancake breakfast remains the marquee event of Bike Month.

The ride leaves from various start locations at 7:00am and meets at Yonge and Bloor for 7:30am. From there the ride heads to Nathan Phillips Square for 8:00am to enjoy a complimentary pancake breakfast and other festivities.

The interactive map below shows the Community Start Locations and routes.

They’ve also been […]

NEWS: Why not make biking on sidewalks legal in the suburbs?

I tend to agree with the main concept here… that suburban arterials need bike infrastructure badly… but cars go SO fast on those roads, it’s impossible to feel safe even in a bikelane that is just paint. A physical barrier (curb, bollards, etc) is needed, or an cycling addition on the side of sidewalks.  Many […]

OH YEAH! How I learned to love cycling my way to work

I’ll be honest, and I hate to admit this, but I used to be that person that perpetually ran five minutes late—to everything. I’d do my best to be timely, but in many circumstances, I just couldn’t seem to make it to my commitments on time. A few years ago my brother became a bicycle […]
