Ride in the East York Canada Day Parade: Monday, July 1, 2013

By , June 18, 2013 8:24 pm

Ward 29 Bikes is riding in the East York Canada Day Parade on July 1 once again this year and cyclists of all ages and abilities are invited to join us. The parade is a great opportunity for new and experienced cyclists alike to ride in a fun, friendly, and safe atmosphere while impressing thousands of spectators with your ability to balance on two wheels at parade speed, turn in circles, and wave. The parade has been run continuously in East York for more than 50 years and features numerous community organizations, floats, a motorcade, marching bands, and—for the fourth year—a growing band of cyclists who want to show how much fun riding around the city can be. The parade winds slowly through the streets of East York to the big Canada Day party in Stan Wadlow Park.

There’s only one thing that’s more fun than watching a parade: being in a parade! So bring yourself, your family, your friends, and your neighbours to the parade starting point (see the map below) on July 1 and get ready for the most fun you can have on two wheels. Wear red and white or Ward 29 blue. We’ll provide bike decorations, or you can decorate on your own if you want to compete in the best dressed bike contest.

Contact us if you’d like to participate this year or if you have any questions about the parade.
