Get Your 10-Speed Out!

2008 May 26

Today is the first day of Toronto Bike Month!

Back in 1988 the City of Toronto created Bike-to-Work Day. Eventually, this became Bike week. Now, for the first time ever, this event is morphing into an entire month of bike-related activities. “The Bike Month 2008 calendar of events will include events that encourage commuter, utilitarian, and recreational cycling. Come check out Bike Month: Toronto’s Festival for Cycling Culture, May 26 – June 21 2008, from fast pace racing to community meetings there’ll be something for everyone.”

Get out there and encourage the city to create more bike lanes, install more parking facilities for bikers, and promote biking as a healthy and inexpensive – and hopefully safe – way to get around Toronto!
