Reminder: This Week is Burger Week (do it by Bike!)

 

Yes, this week is the first week of BikeMonth, but it’s also TheGrid’s 3rd annual Burger Week!

What better way to honour this momentous occasion than by touring some of Toronto’s finest eateries on two wheels to enjoy their delicious hamburgers!

Burger tours will run from Wed, May 29th to Sat, June 1st. The route lengths will get progressively longer as the week goes on.

We’ll be aiming to do take-out at each burger stop. Each restaurant will be serving 1 special burger for $5. You don’t have to eat at all the stops. Stay hydrated and bring water (or some other beverage of your choice).

The routes have been tentatively set, but not quite finalized, so they are subject to change. You can check out the start times, meet-up locations, burger stops, and route details of each day’s tour at the links below:

Day 1: Wed, May 29th @ 5:30pm  (Stockyards and Big Smoke Burger Route: http://goo.gl/maps/l35me

Day 2 Thurs, May 30th @ 5:30pm  (Rock Lobster and Slider Revolution)  Route: http://goo.gl/maps/YtvJm

Day 3 (Fri, May 31st @ 5:30pm) (Barque Smokehouse and Hey Meatball)  Route: http://goo.gl/maps/nX6jc

Day 4 (Sat, June 1st @ 12:00 noon) (The Rude Boy and The Burger Shoppe and Holy Chuck)  Route: http://goo.gl/maps/ujm8G

Join us for as few or as many of the rides/burgers as your legs/stomach can handle! There is no fee to participate in the rides themselves. The only cost will be for your own food & drink.

Bicycle safety encouraged. Helmets and bike bells are strongly recommended! Happy and safe riding.

RSVP on facebook

Note: This event is not officially sponsored by The Grid. We’re simply using their Burger Week as an excuse to bike a lot and eat tons of burgers!

MAPS! Helping cyclists avoid smoggy routes in Toronto and Montreal

  Amazing tool!  Played with it a long time.  Very telling that when you turn off the street map, high pollution levels still indicate where roads (and especially highways and the airport) are, and where the ravines (without highways) are. It is essentially a Google Map with an extra layer representing the average concentration of […]

NEWS: Bloor Bike Lanes Pilot Should Be a Council No-Brainer. Here’s Why It’s Not. 

An excellent piece in Torontoist about why a bike lane pilot designed to collect data about benefits/detriments and overwhelming supported by the community is getting static from politicians: There really should have been little to no debate about this 2.5 kilometre bike lane pilot project running along Bloor Street West from Shaw Street to Avenue […]
