The Toronto Joy Ride

On September 24th, you'll have the chance to ride in the Toronto Joy Ride, a century ride (100 km) with a unique style. The idea is to have fun, ride at your own pace, and even take shortcuts! Looks like a good time. I'm pretty sure I'll be giving it a go. (Not sure what to do: one-speed it?)

The goal is to raise money for the Community Bicycle Network and the Cycling Cog. Hope you can make it! Send me a message if you want to meet up.

Start: Sep 24 2006 - 8:00am
End: Sep 24 2006 - 4:00pm

It's a joy to ride a bike in Toronto!

The Toronto Joy Ride is a 100km (or shorter with shortcuts) ride that brings you through some of the best areas of the city: through tree-lined ravines, along trails, lake shore and urban streets. You get to see a lot of new parts of Toronto, enjoy the company of other great cyclists, and get some exercise along the way - all the while supporting cycling advocacy in Toronto.

The Joy Ride is as challenging or relaxing as you'd like. The main route is 100km but for those who'd only like to do a portion of the route there will options of where people can take a shortcut with their bike, or by subway. The great thing about city riding is that you're never to far away from amenities and transit!

Registration
Updated registration info: Registration is free. There is a suggested donation of $30 to help cover the costs of producing the guide, providing refreshments, and to support cycling advocacy. To register please contact the Cycling Cog. If you are willing to volunteer at the event or leading up to the event send an email.

I'm going to do this one. It sounds like fun, and the subway is there to bail me out should I get too tired.

Want a real challenge? Do it on a unicycle -- a singlespeed of a different kind ;)
