206 - London Bike Month 🚲
It’s June! Which means it’s also London Bike Month…and that means we’ve got a slew of activities planned for riders of all ages and abilities to enjoy!
Here’s a few of the events we’re particularly looking forward to…
Forest City Slow Roll 🐌
Things get underway this Saturday, June 3rd with London Cycle Link’s first annual “Forest City Slow Roll”: a leisurely 9km en masse ride leaving from (and returning to) Dundas Place—where there will be a bunch of food trucks & trikes ready to keep the party going! The event is free, but riders must register in advance here.
London Bicycle Café’s Grand Opening ☕️
If you haven’t been down to check out The London Bicycle Café’s new space— you’re gonna wanna check them out on Saturday, June 10th when they celebrate their Grand Opening with picnic lunches, free drip coffee, a raffle, and more! Free tickets to the event (and pre-order for lunch) available here.
Blessing of the Bicycles 🙏
This one’s for all you holy rollers: join Saint Aidan’s Anglican Church on Sunday, June 11th, in Springbank Park for a BBQ at 1pm before their “blessing of the bicycles” at 2pm and a ride from the park to the London Bicycle Café and back at 2:15!
Bike to the Beach 🏖
Want some insider tips and tricks on how to plan a successful out-of-town bike trip for the whole family? You’re going to want to check out this workshop…
It’s not hard to make Bike Month last all year long with recurring events like the London Cycling Club’s rides, Gremlins Bicycle Emporium’s Thursday Night Group Rides and the WTF Bike Fix’s monthly Bike repair night for 2 Spirit, trans, non-binary, femme, and women folk! Let’s ride!
