Hi Ward 19,
Not sure if Nico and I were enough for quorum, but we had the meeting anyhow and stuck around for the Trinity Bellwoods Community Association to appeal for their endorsement of the Shaw St. and Richmond/Adelaide bike infrastructure projects.
No word yet from the TBCA if they've agreed to sign letters of support.
On the four agenda items Herb helpfully suggested (plus two more):
- April 13th - Trinity Bellwoods Environment Day. Antony will help run a table. Anyone else interested in chatting with the neighbors? This is a great opportunity for first-timers. Let me know. I'll ask Cycle Toronto if we can run a one-stand bike repair service so we have something more than brochures and friendly chat to offer.
- May 4th - Bike Safety Day at Shaw Library. This is already planned, and will run for 2 hours or so. Since it's on the same day as Jane's Walk - does anyone have any ideas on running a post-event ride? We talked about maybe a Safe Routes to School ride?
- May 11th - Bells on Bloor! Any Ward 19 tie-ins would be great. They could use marshalling volunteers, we could run Cycle Toronto signups, etc. They will also need our need help flyering in a few weeks.
- May 26th - Bike with Mike at Christie Pits. We ran a table last year. It was simple and a really fun event! Nico to say "yes" again.
- May 27th - June 30 - Ride for Bike Month? We had a few ideas: free coffee stop at Sam James, maybe part of a "deluxe commute ride" along Harbord? Or Antony will contact the ArtSpin organizers and see if they might be interested in running a 'teaser' event as part of Bike Month?
- Approaching other W19 Residents Associations - we didn't discuss this, other than TBCA. Good idea, to do.
We didn't set a date for the next meeting - maybe something late April? Herb, what do you think?
