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.

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… […]
