Cyclists Celebrate Bikes, Toronto, and Poutine

Earlier today we linked to Hyedie’s recap of the Poutine Ride this past Sunday.  A couple of great gals from Torontoist (Hi Racheal! Hi Gillian!) came out to ride with us, learn about our Sweet Rides and take photos.  Here is their piece:

Is there a best way to celebrate the last beautiful Sunday of the year? The answer is yes, there is: a poutine bike ride.

On Sunday afternoon, a group of 13 cyclists met at Uncle Betty’s, at Yonge Street and Glencairn Avenue. They grabbed a bite to eat that included some poutine, and then rode across a scenic part of the city to take in the autumn colours and the nice weather—and, of course, to eat more poutine.

Sweet Ride: Poutine Edition Recap

The latest of our 2012 Sweet Rides took place on Sunday (we savoury’d it up with some Poutine), and Hyedie has a great re-cap of the ride up:

The last Sweet Ride was originally set for mid-October so that we could take in the fall colours, but the weather didn’t cooperate so we postponed the ride and luckily for us the weather was super warm and dry(despite there being a lack of beautiful leaves).

Tonight: Zombie Bike Lane Critical Mass

via Cycle Toronto:

Like you, we were extremely disappointed by the 24-19 loss at City Council on Oct 2nd to save the Jarvis St bike lanes. 

Cycle Toronto organized, held community meetings, held 2 large rides, launched a legal challenge and submitted a large petition. Community members wrote their councillors and demonstrated against the decision. In spite of this, City Council decided to turn Jarvis back into a highway. 

According to City staff, the Jarvis St. bike lanes will be gone by early November, but they’ll still be undead for the increasing numbers of us who use them regularly to get to school and work, and just get around. So let’s come together one more time: dress up in your scariest Zombie Bike Lane costume and celebrate cycling in Toronto.

RSVP to the Facebook Event Post here.
