Location: Toronto City Hall Rotunda
100 Queen Street West
Councillor Jack Layton, co-chair of the Toronto Cycling Committee, will launch
a Pass Bikes Safely campaign on August 3 at Toronto City Hall.
A total of 56 transit shelter posters across the city will be on display for
the month of August to promote safe interactions on city streets, and the
importance of sharing the road safely by leaving one metre of space between the
motorist and cyclist.
The City's Road and Trail Safety Ambassadors will be on site to raise public
awareness about cycling safety and culture in the city, provide road and trail
safety information for all road and trail users - cyclists, pedestrians,
motorists and in-line skaters, and to draw ballots for free helmets.
The Toronto Cycling Committee is a citizen-based organization that works with
community groups and City Council to build a social, physical and economic
infrastructure that supports and encourages bicycle use in Toronto. For more
