Media Advisory: City to announce bicycle friendly business award winners
The City of Toronto will honour businesses that promote cycling at the 2007 Bicycle Friendly Business Awards ceremony.

Date: Thursday, October 4
Time: 6 p.m.
Location: Rotunda, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.

Businesses and other organizations will be recognized for their efforts in such areas as bicycle friendliness, commuting efforts and skills development. The event will also provide results of the Cycling Consultation Session, held at St. Lawrence Hall on July 26, 2007, which will help shape the future of the Toronto Bike Plan, as well as information about the 2008 Cycle Messenger World Championships being held in Toronto next June.

Councillor Adrian Heaps, Chair of the City’s Cycling Committee, will also present a proclamation recognizing Messenger Appreciation Day (10-9 Day) on behalf of Mayor David Miller. 10-9 Day honours Toronto’s more than 400 bike, foot, and transit couriers for their role in encouraging sustainable alternatives to automobile traffic.
