Jan 25th: The First BikeFriday of 2008!

This friday is BikeFriday!

BikeFriday is an initiative to promote (and encourage) bike events happening in Toronto on the last friday of every month, with the aim of turning that day into a de facto “Bike Day” that happens once a month.

Citizens, politicians and businesses in Toronto all want our air to be cleaner, or streets to be less congested, and our kids to be healthier… and a good way to help achieve these goals is to promote the bicycle as a way of making short trips around the city.

Here’s some of the stuff on tap for Friday:

8:00 – 9:30 AM:
The Grassroots’ Bikers Breakfast
Ride your bike to a free breakfast courtesy of Grassroots at 372 Danforth Avenue (at Chester). Coffee supplied by Merchants of Green Coffee and food by The Big Carrot.

8:00 – 9:30 AM:
Alternative Grounds’ Coffee for Cyclists
Free IN-STORE coffee for anyone with bike helmet – 333 Roncesvalles (at Grenadier) from 8-9:30 AM

6:00 – 8:00 PM:
Critical Mass
Bloor & Spadina – meet at 6:00, ride at 6:30

BikePools / Group Commutes

The concept is simple – let’s meet up in groups and ride to work together. Biking to work can sometimes be dangerous – but it’s safer when you ride with other people.

Drivers are a lot more careful around groups of cyclists. Riding in a group encourages novice cyclists to participate and makes cyclists more visible to motorists. Organized rides also show motorists that cycling is a viable alternative to driving.

If you already ride your bike to work, why not invite others to join you. Email joe@bikingtoronto.com to have your BikeFriday route posted on this website.
