Bicycle commuters socialize at BUG party
  
The City of Toronto will celebrate Bike Week and the Bicycle User Group (BUG)
Network with a reception at St. Lawrence Hall. The public will have an
opportunity to mix with BUG members, City staff and special guests to learn
about the program. City staff will also screen their “Tips for Commuter
Cyclists” video during the reception, after which the video will then be
available exclusively to BUG members.

Date: Wednesday, June 8
Time: 6 p.m.
Location: St. Lawrence Hall, 157 King St. E.

A Bicycle User Group is a group of two or more people who come together to
improve cycling conditions, or to enjoy cycling as a group. The BUG Network
provides ongoing support and incentives to encourage cyclists to create new
groups and maintain existing ones. Membership is free and open to groups of two
or more cyclists anywhere in the city of Toronto.

Supporting bicycle commuters by organizing events and providing programming is
congruent with the City’s commitment to reducing car trips and encouraging
sustainable transportation. Creating an active BUG Network is an important
step in implementing the Toronto Bike Plan.
