End of Ride Event

This years’ End of Ride event has been organized by Toronto East Cyclists and partnering groups – it’s called “Safe Streets for Scarborough” (Facebook Event) and features an interactive mock-up of a city street plus information and resource kiosks on how we can make our near-suburb streets safer and less stressful for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers.
This happening features a life-sized interactive model of a Safe Street for walking, cycling and driving – plus information and resources from the following partner participants:
  • Bells on Danforth
  • Bike Law Canada
  • Bike to School Project
  • Cycle Toronto
  • The Centre for Active Transportation
  • Doctors for Safe Cycling
  • Friends and Families for Safe Streets
  • Scarborough Cycles
  • Toronto East Cyclists
  • 8-80 Cities
  • Walk Toronto

This event is running in conjunction with the already-in-progress “Oakridge CRC Fun Fair” which features children’s games, bouncy castles, a used goods Bazaar, an Arts Market plus food and drink kiosks.

There are also plenty of bike lock-up locations, water and public washrooms available at the Oakridge Community Recreation Centre.


We’ll be following the same route as last year, riding east along Danforth Avenue from Logan to Danforth Road and then circling back along neighbourhood streets to 63 Pharmacy Ave (at Denton – 1 block north of Danforth):

This year, you’ll be able to follow the ride on Glympse (IOS, Android), so you’ll know exactly where we are if you plan to join in along the way.

Getting Back

An escorted return ride west along Danforth Avenue to Logan Avenue. More details will be announced before the start of the ride and at Oakridge CRC. Riders may leave the main group with a ding and a wave as they approach their destinations. If you don’t want to take the escorted ride back, organizers will announce from the stage how to get to Victoria Park subway station or the Taylor Creek/Don Valley trail system via quiet residential streets (as well, if you need directions ask any Bells on Danforth organizer). If you need more information send us an email.
