big year for car free
47 cyclists showed up for the critical mass bike ride Friday, including a tall boy riding a tall bike (above). 250-300 people came out Thursday to the Gage Park movie night; 12 people to Recycle Cycles bike repair on Tuesday, our first ever Bridge Party on Pearl Street pedestrian bridge drew about 50 people, largely residents of the area. Monday's bus and hike to Sherman Falls had 20 soles (that's be 10 people) making the trip: it's been a good good week so far, with fine weather and lots of word of mouth action getting people out.
So, with today and tomorrow winding up the week (and the weather changing...) it's time to get out and celebrate some more: Car Free Parking Meter Party at the parking lot in front of My Dog Joe (1020 King Street West in Westdale) today (Saturday) from 12 noon to 3pm (a pinata full of prizes awaits you); and Sunday at 10am meet inside the Student Centre in front of the Union Market for the guided hike of Cootes Paradise with Brian McHattie.
