Things to do in Toronto this Weekend on your Bike

I try to highlight bike events when I can… I often don’t have the time to promote other than on the Facebook Page and on @bikingtoronto on twitter, but here goes.

Saturday, Sept 22

Toronto Girls Cupcake Ride

The Girls Cupcake Ride is like a Toronto bike tradition now… it’s finishing it’s 3rd year and is just as awesome as it’s always been.  This Saturday is the last ride of 2012 and “instead of going to a bakery that offers cupcakes, we’ll be starting at a cookie bakery that will bake some special ‘cupcake cookies’ just for us (or you can order a freshly baked, custom cookie) and will offer us a 15% off discount!Then we’ll ride across town to check out the Red Bull Mini Drome time trial qualifiers at the Brickworks, which start at 2pm.”

It’s a great time (or so my wife and daughter tell me) and Hyedie the organizer is a good friend.  Oh, and in case you can’t tell, no boys allowed.

Get all the details here.

 

Toronto Boys Sausage Party

This is the very first Sausage Party Ride, organized by the great people (Joe & Denise) behind the Prix Fixie Food Ride.

A route for the men while their female friends are doing the September Toronto Girls’ Cupcake Ride that will allow them to meet up at the Brick Works for the Red Bull Mini Drome.  While the women start with sweets, the men will enjoy three courses in reverse order.

Get all the details here.

 

Cycle for Sight End-of-Summer Fun Ride

The wonderful event Cycle for Sight organizes not only their main ride, but training rides too.  They’ve organized one last hurrah for summer on Saturday.  All the details are via their facebook page.

 

Sunday, Sept. 23

Word on the Street

What’s this?  This doesn’t seem bike-related does it?  Well… no… BUT, not only is Dandyhorse Magazine going to have their brand spankin’ new issue at WOTS this year, BUT you can not only ride your bike there, you can park it for free with Cycle Toronto‘s amazing Bike Valet Service.

It’s a truly wonderful service.  I never worry less about the safety of my bike as when it’s with the Bike Valet.

Word on the Street is at Queen’s Park Circle

NEWS: Should cyclists be allowed to ride through stop signs?

Obviously, yes.  Just like drivers are.  Spend any time at a stop sign and watch how many cars do “rolling stops” if there ar no other moving vehicles near the intersection.  Spoiler alert: almost every driver does rolling stops, just like cyclists do. In fact, when I learned to drive in Newmarket, a stop sign […]

SHOP: Brand new bike shop a shrine for serious cyclists

Well, the headline is a little stupid… it should read “…shrine for roadie cyclists”, as “serious” doesn’t only apply to those willing to drop thousands of dollars on a bike. It applies equally to the tens (hundreds?) of thousands of Torontonians who are serious about using their bike to get around the city – to […]

OH YEAH! Steamwhistle expands its network of bike repair stations

Oh yeah!  BlogTO has picked up the BikingToronto post last week about this.  Steamwhistle deserves lots of toasts. As Biking Toronto reports, over the last year or so the beer company has installed similar stations at the Brick Works, the Duke of York pub, and most recently in front of Bike Sauce. 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 […]
