Reminder! The Toronto Bike Awards are on Monday!

The Toronto Bike Awards are this coming Monday (Sept. 26) at the Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen West)

The Toronto Bike Awards consist of the City of Toronto giving out Bicycle Friendly Business Awards (BFBA) and some bike groups will give out their own awards.

Also, please note that the Toronto Cyclists Union is providing their Bike Valet service, so you don’t have to worry about finding a place to park or about your two-wheeled steed getting stolen. :)

More about the BFBAs:

The Bicycle Friendly Business Awards are given out every year to businesses and organizations across Toronto who are making an effort to encourage their clients and employees to cycle. Previous award winners have proven their commitment to cycling through a variety of initiatives such as providing secure bike parking, shower and change facilities, and offering economic incentives for employees who cycle to work.

The awards recognize that the more people ride their bikes, the more we will notice a reduction in traffic congestion and pollution, making Toronto a greener and healthier place to live, work, and play.

And here are the winners from the last BFBAs (in 2009)
