For a large downtown racing event, they *really* need to work on their promotion more.  I generally make an effort to know about biking events to let BikingToronto readers know about them… but even I wasn’t aware of this until the City released their latest issue of Cyclometer.

I mean yes… cyclists interested in racing probably know about it… but if you want regular people and regular cyclists to come to your event, you have to get the word out.
