After 24 years of service to Torontonians providing sustainable transportation options such as the award winning BikeShare bike lending program; workshops such as Wenches with Wrenches; selling used bikes; rare and obsolete bike parks and running the hugely popular Toronto Vintage Bicycle Show, CBN is finally shutting down.
Thank you to all of our members, supporters, volunteers and board members over the 24 years. You have all made a difference and have advanced cycling in our lovely city far beyond our dreams.
With the success of pilot projects such as the cycle tracks of Richmond & Adelaide, the contra-flow lane on Shaw Street, the Bloor Street bike lanes; the popular Bike Share program run by the City through the Toronto Parking Authority and with the success of organizations such as Cycle Toronto, Bike Sauce, Bike Pirates, Bike Chain and Charlie’s Freewheels, CBN can finally go to rest knowing that cycling advocacy and services are in good hands.
There will be a closing party for all this coming Monday December 11 at Le Socialite Restaurant and Bar in Kensington Market from 7-9pm. All are welcomed to attend to celebrate this milestone in cycling advocacy in Toronto. Please RSVP by Friday, December 8th, 2017 – 5pm.
CBN will turn over its archives to the Toronto cycling community. We would like to thank all people from over the years that had a hand in the vision and activities of Community Bicycle Network.
Ride Safe Friends.
The Acting Board of Directors of CBN.
