What: Come out for a group ride on the statistically coldest day of the year.
Where: This year, the ride will highlight the Martin-Goodman Waterfront Trail. Start Location is the Grenadier Cafe in High Park. We will then ride along the waterfront to Coronation Park, and discuss some of the challenges and successes of winter snow maintenance for cyclists. Hot Chocolate for riders will be served at the Grenadier Cafe.
Why: Winter riding is not only a practical way to get around, it's fun too.
Last year, the City ran a pilot project to plough the Martin-Goodman Waterfront Trail for cyclists. The pilot was a success, and this year the City will continue testing various winter road maintenance options on the trail. The ride will be a great chance to learn more about winter road maintenance, and to talk with City Staff about winter riding in Toronto.
