Bike Event: Bells on Bloor

Bicycle advocates and activists are planning the second annual Bells on Bloor bike ride this Sunday. The purpose of the ride is to promote the idea of safer cycling facilities along Bloor St., particularly the installation of bike lanes. The ride will be coming through our neighbourhood along Bloor St. shortly after noon.

These details are from the Bells on Bloor website, where you can find more information:
