Invitation to ward advocates: Thursday Feb 27, 6-8pm - What's New with Bikes and Schools
Kristin Schwartz on Feb 19, 2014

Greetings ward advocates - I coordinate the Bike to School Project with Cycle Toronto, CultureLink and our partners. Many times I've been asked by cycling advocates about how to "involve students" or "connect with schools".

To help answer this question, I've worked with Jared to organize an event on Thursday Feb 27 at CultureLink (Dundas West and Bloor). Our presenters are from neighbourhoods across Toronto. They will share stories about successful collaborations that advance cycling and we'll have time for breakout groups as well to plan and brainstorm in a more focused way. All the details are here:

and you can register here:

Hope to see some of you there!

Kristin Schwartz

P.S. I know it's the same date and time as the Argyle meeting - unfortunately we had booked this long before that meeting was publicly announced. Go Argyle contraflow! Did you know that students at Central Commerce Collegiate wrote letters and deputed for the Shaw Street contraflow lane? It all helps!

First Meeting of the Year
Genessa on Jan 10, 2014
4 February, 2014 - 19:00 - 21:00

Hot Chocolate Ride
Genessa on Jan 10, 2014
26 January, 2014 - 12:30 - 15:00


Winter Blues got you down, time to ride them away with bikes and chocolate - two of my favourite things.

We'll start at Wellesley and Bay heading to SOMA at King and Spadina -- anyone who wants to meet the group at our first destination is more than welcome to start there, we should be there sometime between 1 and 1:15.
After sampling the awesomeness of Soma will be heading east to Bobette & Belle on Queen East just west of Jones Avenue.

This is open to anyone, casual speeds and I'll try to keep the route to roads with bike lanes and plowed side streets.

If the weather is not favourable I will postpone to the following Sunday -- updating the page the morning of the ride - fingers crossed for sunshine and no wind -- I don't want to do the ride in crappy weather.

Dress warm and see you there

CycleTO Ward 28 Meeting
KonaHonkyTonk on Jul 31, 2013
7 August, 2013 - 18:30 - 20:00

Hi There - on behalf of Ward 28 (Cycle Toronto) we hope all is well and you've enjoyed a July full of cycling!  Hard to believe it's the end of July.  

This is a friendly notice/invite for the upcoming Ward 28 local advocacy group meeting for Cycle Toronto, next Wednesday August 7th at 6:30pm.  We will meet at JetFuel Coffee Shop on Parliament Street just north of Carlton.

We'd love to see you there as we continue to explore important issues relating to our Ward (which covers the whole east side of downtown Toronto) and how we can take more effective action as a local group of energized Cycle Toronto members.

Sadly for me, I will actually be resigning as co-captain at this meeting, since I will be moving to Ottawa in the fall.  It would be especially great to see some new faces who can help 'carry the torch' with fellow Ward 28 captain Paul Moir.  Many hands make light work!

Thanks and hope to see you there,

Gareth Davies and Paul Moir
Ward 28 Co-Captains

Ward 27 Street Smarts Workshop
As a result of last year's members' summit hosted by Cycle Toronto, one of the overwhelming requests was for there to be more cycling safety education for cyclists and Torontonians. Cycle Toronto hence increased the number of Street Smarts Workshop, going to different wards and neighbourhoods to talk about Safe Cycling and other tips!

Join Bike27 and volunteers from Cycle Toronto for a session to talk about Safe Cycling, and learn some basic bike maintenance skills!

Where: 519 Church
When: 2-4pm Sat, July 27

Spread the word! Event page here.

Ride on!
