We need your help to organize and run the 2015 Toronto East Bike Festival



Three years ago we launched the Scarborough Southwest Bike Rodeo. This event has engaged community partners and grown from 100 to 300 participants.

Big Gestures are Needed to Expand Cycling Across Toronto

For 2015 we received a grant to make this a larger event, a bold gesture to expand cycling culture in Toronto. See our winning submission here http://j.mp/1vLzrPv

One objective and goal of the festival is that we want it to include even more activities and participants for cyclists! So we are inviting you to our first planning meeting! We have an initial framework for the event, but it will be shaped by the interests of partners and volunteers who bring their ideas to the table.
