Cycle Toronto hosted the annual “Coldest Day of the Year” ride this year, and on Saturday, February 1, around noon, a pretty big group of cyclists rode with a police escort from Queen’s Park to Dufferin Grove Park, where they enjoyed hot chocolate and good company by the campfire next to the Dufferin Grove skating rink.

EVENT: Sat, Feb 1 – Coldest Day of the Year Ride

I haven’t done this ride in a few years, but it’s a fun time.

On Sat, Feb 1 at 12:15pm, ride with us from Queen’s Park to Dufferin Grove Park, where we’ll have a small campfire set up next to the skating rink! Bring your skates and a reusable mug for our campfire hot chocolate, or bring a thermos with your own hot drink. Dufferin Grove Park’s Zamboni Cafe also has hot chocolate, snacks, and $2 skate rentals.

Winter Cycling Capital of World is in … Finland

Come on Toronto.  If the Finnish can bike all winter, we can too.  Aren’t there entire commercials by beer companies, Tim Hortons and Canadian Tire about how hearty Canadians are?

Let’s get out there and enjoy it.

5. Embrace the elements

How to Bike Through a Toronto Winter

Great how-to from Torontoist on biking in the winter, and I’m obviously adding this link to our How-To Page.

Winter is on the way, meaning soon you’ll have no choice but to stop riding your bike and start spending a bunch of money on TTC fare.

Or, you know, you could not do that.

If you’ve never biked through a winter before, now is as good a time as any to try. If you’re prepared for it, it’s really no worse than any other form of being outdoors in Toronto during cold weather.
