Bike Month Rally at Queens Park: Pedestrian and Cycling Safety

Happy Bike Month! Throughout the month of June, communities across Canada will celebrate Bike Month. The month kicked off Monday, May 28 with the Toronto Group Commute, where commuters from around the city cycle together toward Yonge and Bloor for festivities including a pancake breakfast at City Hall. There are dozens of events all month long, including group rides and tours, workshops, and clinics. The entire schedule is available online.

One event of particular interest is on Saturday, June 2, when cyclists and pedestrians of all ages are invited to join a rally at Queen's Park to push the provincial government to play a more active role in making streets safer. The rally starts at 3PM, and pedestrians and cyclists can join an organized group to walk or bike to the event. Join one of four festive options – Bells on Bloor, Bells on Danforth & Bells on Yonge or the Walk 'n Roll Caravan – that will take you to Queen's Park: Groups are schedule to depart from several locations.
