The Joy of Cycling

We had a great ride on Saturday, with more than 250 cyclists starting Bells on Danforth at East Lynn Park and more than 300 riders in total joining us for at least a portion of the route. Thanks to all of the families who celebrated Mother’s Day with us and made this year’s ride a huge success. Here’s a gallery of pictures from Saturday’s ride and and the Cycle and Sole rally with Bells on Bloor, Bells on Yonge, and Walk Toronto.

Thanks to Andrew Lee, Greg Burrell, Lynne Gray and Pink Spokes, and Val Dodge for the pictures.
