DECA Bikes!

After three years of ‘hounding’ Mary Margaret McMahon and her ilk have convinced the City to install 10 new bike racks at Woodbine subway station.  This stuff doesn’t just magically happen – somebody makes it happen…and often that someone in Mary Margaret.

1st Ever DECA Bikes! Tune Up Workshop

On Saturday, March 27th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. bring your bike to the Danforth Mennonite Church at 2174 Danforth (one block east of Woodbine on the north side) to learn how to get your bike ready for the season.  Bring your bike and pay what you can.  For more info contact Jamie Thiers 416-587-7204 after 3 p.m.  or anytime.

Bike Sauce

Give us your poor, your rusty, your jumbled mass of old bicycles….Bike Sauce will breathe new life into them.  Your donated bicycles and bike parts will be used to put more bikes on the road and help people develop bike repair skills.  Bike Sauce is an east-end volunteer-run, registered non-profit dedicated to promoting cycling in Toronto.  It has three goals:

1. To refurbish old bikes and help people learn to repair their own bikes

2. To get more people cycling

3. To advocate for better cycling in the city

Does this sound like something you want to know more about?  Something you want to help make happen?  They need volunteers of all descriptions – from bike fixers to tea-makers and cheerleaders.

    Trying to lock my bike to the lone sign post or the chain link fence was an exercise in frustration!

  2. Dear Mary-Margaret,

    You have waved your magic wand once again! The plot along the TTC fencing looks neighbourhood friendly and I can’t wait till the trees and plants start to bloom! THANK YOU too for the bike racks!
