Bells on Bloor 2013

Hello Junction Triangle Residents,

Our 7th annual Bells on Bloor family bicycle parade will be held on Saturday May 11, beginning shortly after 12:00noon from the front gates of High Park (at High Park Ave and Bloor St West). We will be traveling east on Bloor St to St George, where we will turn right to travel southbound to Hoskins, turning left on Hoskins to go east to Queen's Park Crescent, then turning right to go southbound to the tip of Queen's Park, where we will dismount from our bikes and walk north on the sidewalk to finish at the front of the Ontario Legislature Building. For this year, the route has been slightly changed to avoid conflict with the Freedom Festival, that will be gathering at the intersection of Bloor Street and Queen's Park Crescent.
As in years past, the family bike ride will be accompanied by around 16 members of the Toronto Police Bike Unit (arranged with 11 Division) and 4 members of St John's Ambulance Bike Unit.

For this year, the event will revolve around a Mothers' Day theme, with flower decorations on bicycles, so we encourage as many mothers as possible to join in. The participation of mothers will also greatly emphasize the need for safer streets, not only for now but also for future generations.
In addition a portion of Bloor Street (from Lansdowne to Bathurst) will be repaved - of which a significant portion is located in Ward 18.

Hopefully, you can mark this date in your calendars to participate in what has traditionally been a fun time for all!

Thank you,

Peter Low
