BikeFriday in Roncesvalles Village – July 27

This Friday marks the one-year anniversary of BikeFriday in Toronto. To celebrate, the bike-friendly, fair-trade baristas and bean roasters of Alternative Grounds (at 333 Roncesvalles) are offering cyclists free coffee and homemade muffins. I’ll be there from 8 until 9: 30 a.m this Friday.

Special thanks to Rowena Santos from MPP Cheri DiNovo’s office for all her help in organizing this event. Rowena and I met on a BikeFriday ride last October. You can see my Spacing Votes post about that BikeFriday here. And, here is the very first official announcement for BikeFriday.

Thanks also to Alex and Stacy of the City of Toronto’s BUG program for supplying additional promotional bike literature.

All the other BikeFriday routes are posted here on BikingToronto and here on I Bike TO.

Last month, the City of Mississauga announced that it officially supports BikeFriday. A large group of cyclists rode to a free pancake breakfast served by politicians at Mississauga Civic Centre. Mississauga rocks!

Oh and …don’t forget, Critical Mass. Meet at 6 pm at Bloor and Spadina.
