Join thousands across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area to celebrate Smart Commute’s 7th Annual Bike to Work Day. In conjunction with Smart Commute Mississauga and the Mississauga Cycling Advisory Committee, the City of Mississauga will be hosting a FREE pancake breakfast event on Monday, to encourage area residents, students and employees to try cycling to school or work. The event includes -- bike safety check-ups, fun prizes, cycling vendors, entertainment and much more! Leave your vehicles at home on May 27 and live green, one bike ride at a time.
The bicycle-pedestrian bridge over the mouth of Humber River is the connection from Etobicoke to downtown Toronto. Meet at the bridge at 6:30AM (sharp!) and we will ride through High Park to Bloor Street and connect with the main west-end commute group heading downtown to City Hall. Everyone is welcome, regardless of cycling ability. (Total distance is approx 14 km.)
A FREE pancake breakfast at City Hall awaits all bike commuters!

This event is sponsored by Etobicoke-South CYCLING committee, and Lakeshore Planning Council.
MEC Bikefest is a daylong community celebration of all things bicycle related. Our goal is to bring together Toronto’s bicycle community and those new to bikes, to celebrate the wonders of cycling.
This FREE event will be held in Toronto's Trinity Bellwoods Park (near Queen W and Shaw), and has something for everyone, so bring the whole family down to the sweetest cycling celebration of the summer.
Along with FUN and festivities, MEC Bikefest is a hub of knowledge where cyclists new and old can make connections and get the information they need to pursue their passion, including group rides, workshops and clinics (pre-registration required).
Lots more information about the event, including directions, map, schedule, and clinic summaries, is available on the MEC website.
Join us for this daylong bicycle bash - it will be a great kickoff for a summer of cycling!!
The proposed Sherway Trail -along south Etobicoke Creek, from QEW to Sherway Drive- is only 700m long, but it is an important link in the Etobicoke Creek Trail network, as it will help connect the Waterfront with neighbourhoods north of the QEW.
This project has been in the works for several years, but has been held up by government red tape. Now, the funding for the project, which was set aside in 2006, may be "re-allocated" to fund other park projects.
The Planning Dept of the City of Toronto is holding a public consultation on this issue on Thursday, January 24 (6:00) at Etobicoke Council chambers (399 The West Mall, at Burnhamthorpe).
It is important that the community shows its support for the Sherway Trail project, as it facilitates pedestrian and cycling travel between the waterfront and neighbourhoods and other trails in central Etobicoke and Mississauga. It is a key link in the trail network.
Please attend the meeting on Thursday and speak with the Planning staff and other local residents.
