Toronto East Bike Festival

Description: From flowing tassels to flaming training wheels to chopper-framed bikes, the Toronto East Bike Festival celebrated all things cycling at its 4th annual showcase. Marvin, the Scarborough Cycles Project Coordinator for the Toronto Centre for Active Transportation, along with a group of enthusiastic organizers, hosted a day of events and attractions promoting a healthy and active alternative to driving a car. The warming sun brought out many bike enthusiasts of all ages to spend the day enjoying the different attractions such as the Bike Rodeo and Kid's Bike Zone and taking part in demonstrations at Warden Hilltop Community Centre. There was something for everyone: young cyclists took part in some jousting fun while others came to have their bikes looked after and tuned up, and the musically inclined enjoyed the grooving tunes playing at the event, cotton candy in hand. This year, the festival was made possible by a grant from Game On Toronto, a program that promotes active communities, fosters a healthier lifestyle and encourages participation in sports.
