Bike Week in the Don

Bike Week is an annual event held in Toronto. Starting today, events are held across the city to encourage more people to get on their bikes and ride (is it a coincidence that the TTC started a wildcat strike on the first day of Bike Week? You tell me...).

Two events are scheduled for places in the Don Valley. The first is a trail building seminar being held on Wed. May 29 at 6:00 PM. The meeting location is at the southeast corner of the Loblaws parking lot which is just off Millwood Road between Overlea and Southvale (see map).

There will be a training session held by IMBA Canada to teach participants about building and maintaining sustainable and long lasting trails.

The second event is a bike tour of parts of the Don Valley park system. The event is on Sat. June 3 at 10 AM starting at Victoria Park subway station. The tour will go through Taylor Creek Park, E.T. Seton Park, and end up in Sunnybrook Park.
