Toronto Bike Month

Bike Month starts right after Energy Conservation Week ends and there were plenty of bicycles in Nathan Phillips Square for the launch of the more "better way" to get physically fit and environmentally conscience.

I love to travel around Toronto's downtown using a bike for the freedom and opportunities that you can find without being restricted to a car and finding the necessary and expensive parking spot. You could also find info here to retire your ride which gets your old clunker off the road and improves the air quality for everyone.

The Month (May 25 to June 21) is kicked off at City Hall's Nathan Phillips Square and a number of booths have been set up with bicycle related stuff including the City's table where you can pick up a free pen and a 2009 Toronto Cycling Map. Maya Cycle is also on hand with a handy bicycle trailer display and some friendly sales staff (see photo at top of post).

I tracked down one of the new EcoCabs and its rider and got some more pictures of the great idea on wheels.

Bikes Without Borders and Virgin Mobile has a 2009 annual Bike For Africa walk and roll fundraising event on Toronto Islands on May 30 from 1 to 8 pm. They hope people will register and come out to support the purchase of bikes and bike ambulances for African HIV/AIDS workers
