9am–noon | Ride the Ravines
11am–4pm | Bikes, BBQ & Beer
Pedal your way to a greener city and spread the joy of cycling across the GTA!
Join the inaugural charity ride in partnership with Cycle Toronto (formerly the Toronto Cyclists Union) through 25 kilometres of Toronto’s Bikeway Network in support of accessible cycling in the GTA.
Be sure to stick around after the ride for Bikes, BBQ & Beer—featuring live musical acts, delicious local food and cheer.
The ride will wind through Toronto’s ravine network, residential streets, a major road, the lakeshore boardwalk, and a few parks. The route begins and ends at Evergreen Brick Works, and is 25km in total (with the option of a 12km route as well). After the ride, cyclists and community members will come together for the ‘Ravine Rodeo’ – a vibrant, fun-filled event featuring live musical acts, delicious food and an opportunity to mingle with sponsors, retailers, community partners and members. We expect that approximately 500 cyclists will participate in the ride and an additional 500-750 will join us for post-ride Rodeo events. Registration is now live (http://ebw.evergreen.ca/whats-on/special-events/ride-the-ravines)!
