CHATTER: Kick off Bike Month by riding with Mike (May 2018)

May 9th, 2018 · No Comments

Councillor Mike Layton’s (Ward 19, Trinity-Spadina) eighth annual kick off to Bike Month returns May 27 from 12 to 5 p.m. at Christie Pits Park.

Bike with Mike is a free, family-friendly community cycling event open to anyone who wants to participate. It will feature a free barbecue and many children’s events like bike decorating, bicycle-themed story telling, and tricycle races. There will also be free bike safety checks, tune-ups, and community cycling information.

The annual Kids Bike Swap, which is held in conjunction with the events, starts at 10 a.m. Parents of children ages 4 to 12 can drop off their child’s outgrown bike and pick up a new, better fitting one from 1 to 5 p.m. Celebrated every June in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, Bike Month promotes bike-centric events aimed at improving the health of Canadians and the environment.
