Pedal the Don ~ 17km Toronto Bike Ride ~ Saturday May 3, 2009 1-3 pm
Cycle the length of the connected trail in the Lower Don River, from Sunnybrook to the Waterfront. John Wilson, Chair of the Task Force to Bring Back the Don, assisted by the U of T Mountain Biking Team and friends, will lead a bicycle tour, running parallel to the “Paddle the Don” event organized for the same day by the Toronto & Region Conservation Authority (TRCA). This gentle bike hike will stop at various locations to view the high-points of Don River restoration efforts, to share stories and to look at how connected and accessible the Don trails are and could become. This event is in conjunction with Lost Rivers and Jane’s Walks. Cycling is primarily off-road on paved trails, with a short section of residential street cycling, at an easy pace.
Starting point – Yonge & Lawrence, southeast corner near library; finish at the Paddle the Don take-out event , Don Roadway & Villiers (near Lake Shore Blvd.). Refreshments are sold by TRCA at the take-out event. For information visit www.pedalthedon.ca or call John at 416-432-2544, or firstname.lastname@example.org
