A little Tweet from Yvonne the momma bird over at bikeunion.to led me to write this post about a gift that I recently sent myself in the mail.
The bike union is the first city wide, member-based cycling advocacy organisation in Toronto representing the needs and rights of cyclists, and working towards the addition of more and better bike lanes and infrastructure.
Their work on behalf of T.O cyclists is almost entirely funded through memberships, so if you ride a bike, or knows someone who rides in Toronto and like the idea of others working for you to improve conditions, please consider signing up. I get my daily Toronto cycle culture updates by following them on twitter, Tweet Tweet!.
I have to say the amount of support i've recieved from Toronto readers and riders has been great, and since joining the Union I feel more connected to the differences and similarities that unite us as citizens and cyclists in Toronto.
Happy Holidays and Safe Winter Cycling
