What we're about
This is an Active Meetup group for those who love to bike. We will have events for:
- Road Bikers (80km+ rides) and Ride for Heart, Cancer Rides
- Mountain Bikers (Don Valley Trail, Albion Hills)
- Trail Bikers (Toronto trails - Humber Valley)
We love to Bike and we love to fund raise. We can assist you in your Fund Raising efforts (for those who have decided to Fund raise for Ride for Heart, Cure to Conquer Cancer rides and Cycle for Sight Rides). Below are some of the type of bike rides we will organize in this group.
It depends on the type of ride that will suit your ability and what you are comfortable with; Jacob + Andrew + Brian (Me) --> These are 3 organizers that are comfortable with shorter rides... (35 km , Mid Week Rides) and can cater to people who don't want to go long distances (85km - 100km) and are comfortable with local Toronto trails and bike paths. I know Andrew and Jacob would also like to do some Mountain biking at Albion Hills and Hardwood Hills in which they can arrange/organize and co-ordinate car-pooling and those rides as well.
We can also organize some Night Rides (we have lights, helmuts) going through Edwards Gardens, Humber Valley , East / West Don that will take us to explore the city of Toronto, ON Demetrius --> Demetrius seems to be comfortable with 65km - 80km road bikes on Saturday or Sunday mornings. He used to organize routes for TBN (Toronto Bicycle Network). He is an excellent organizer/leader and all are welcome to ride with him. He knows road routes outside of the city and seems comfortable to organize longer fitness rides that would more be suited towards road bikers. (I'm interested in getting into longer rides when I get my road bike) :) Jean Yves (J-Y) --> He is a new organizer for our group that suggested interest in organizing rides. Once again, he seems like an experienced rider and he will be like Demetrius but probably organizing some Mid Week or Weekend Rides (road bike rides) in and around the city.
This is a group for Beginner Bikers as well! I am just learning how to Road Bike and we can arrange carpool rides up to Road Bike destinations. For those who are bike enthusiasts that want to bike, we can always train and teach you!
The summer has just started! (Correction, Summer is half way done!) Let's start to bike. The season is long lasting from May - November!
