Cycling event kicks off bike month in Toronto

It’s bike-to-work day in Toronto.

Cyclists met at Yonge and Charles streets at 7 a.m. on Monday to ride as a group down to and Nathan Phillips Square for a pancake breakfast.

Bike Share Toronto, the city’s cycle program provided through Green P, is part of the event.

Bike month starts Monday and lasts until June 26. It’s an annual event that started 25 years ago in 1989 and is co-ordinated by Cycle Toronto and supported by the city.

“As owners of Bike Share Toronto we are thrilled to be a part of Bike Month,” said Toronto Parking Authority president Lorne Persiko. “We hope Torontonians will come downtown and enjoy the ride.”

There are various cycling events planned all month all over the city. See the program’s event calendar for details.
