The Toronto Cycling Committee (TCC) with the City of Toronto is challenging
individuals, community groups, businesses and bicycle groups to get involved in
Bike Week 2001 to help promote the importance of bicycle use in Toronto. The
fun begins May 25 and ends June 3.
Bike Week, now in its 12th year, promises to be bigger than ever, with more
than 40 exciting cycling events planned. Activities include races, group rides,
festivals, breakfasts, workshops, contests and window displays.
No activity is too big or small. The TCC is still looking for people to:
1. Organize and host cycling events. All registered events will be featured on
the Bike Week 2001 events listing poster (due out in May) and the City's Web
2. Host information booths on Nathan Phillips Square at the launch of Bike Week
on May 28.
3. Participate in the "Humongous Group Ride" that takes place May 28.
4. Be volunteers.
5. Purchase Bike Week gear. Be fully outfitted for Bike Week for only $20. The
package includes a T-shirt, water bottle, poster and Toronto cycling map. All
proceeds will benefit Toronto's cycling programs.
Please call 416-392-7592 or fill in the registration forms posted on the City's
Web site at: http://www.city.t
