Citizens for Safe Cycling presents the fourth annual Family Winter Cycling Parade & Forum on Sunday, January 25, 2015 from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The main event is a fun 4 km bike ride through Centretown, starting at City Hall. It’s a good way to try winter biking if you’re new to it, meet up with other cyclists and demonstrate that with the right supports, winter can include biking. After the ride, there’s a discussion on winter biking with city councillors, as well as prizes, coffee and hot chocolate.
