The forecast for Thursday evening is clear and sunny and there won’t be a better night for our fun Ward 29 History bike ride. Learn about some of the families that helped to build (sometimes literally) East York, discover the hidden history in our own neighbourhood, and uncover the stories behind familiar (and not-so-familiar) buildings. The Ward 29 History bike ride is a guided tour through a selection of historic sites in three different corners of Ward 29. We ride at a comfortable pace and pause at each site for a brief discussion.
For this ride only, our starting point is at Playter Gardens on Cambridge Avenue at Danforth Avenue, one block west of Broadview Avenue. Meet at 6:15 p.m. on Thursday, June 20, 2013. As always, the tour gets underway at 6:30 p.m. rain or shine, but will be cancelled if thunderstorms are likely. Email firstname.lastname@example.org before 5:00 p.m. on Thursday if you want confirmation of the status of the ride; final determination will be made by 5:30 p.m.
You should bring:
- a bike in good working order,
- clothing appropriate for the weather,
- a bottle of water,
- money for refreshments after the ride,
- lights for the late-evening ride home, and
- TTC fare in case you get tired and need a lift home.
We’ve already finished half of our six scheduled Thursday Night Rides for this year. If you’ve been meaning to join us for a ride but haven’t been able to yet, this is the week to get on the bike.
