Thanks to everyone for the first Bells on Danforth ride!

Thanks to more than 90 riders who came out for the inaugural Bells on Danforth ride on a chilly, windy Saturday afternoon on June 2 to celebrate cycling in Toronto and advocate for better infrastructure in the east end. Our first ride was a big success and we’re already looking forward to next year’s edition.

Many thanks to our sponsors:

  • Cycle Solutions for setting up in East Lynn Park and offering tune-ups and advice to riders.
  • Broom Wagon Cyclery for providing a package of giveaways that was distributed among cyclists.

We’d also like to thank the Toronto Police Service and Councillor Janet Davis (Ward 31, Beaches-East York) for joining us on the ride, Councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon (Ward 32, Beaches-East York) for providing behind-the-scenes support, and Albert Koehl for organizing the Cycle and Sole rally.

And we wouldn’t have been able to pull off the ride without our team of volunteers:

Anne Burbidge, Anthony Davison, Brendan Morrissey, Charlotte Young, Greg Burrell, Jim Neff, Joe Drew, Kathy Chung, Luke Siragusa, Mary Ann Neary, Murray Lumley, Paul Young, Peter Low, Randy Tsomis, Renata Janiszewska, Rob Wallis, Shawnte Clow, Tom Flaherty, Val Dodge, and Vivien Leong
