Cycle Ontario Alliance Conference

July 3, 2005 – Hamilton welcomed the World Championship Cycling in 2003. The event was spectacular but opportunities for a more bicycle and friendly Ontario were greatly missed. Now Hamilton will welcome the other cyclists, the ones working for a more bicycle and friendly Ontario!

The Cycle Ontario Alliance is building upon its first and highly successful Bringing Cyclists Togetherî conference held in Ottawa in 2002. Details about the Hamilton conference will be forthcoming once the program has been confirmed, but we will be looking to have a day that can provide great speakers, presentations, and lots of opportunities for networking and interaction around cycling issues and topics. An informal reception the night before (Friday October 21) and possibly a cycle ride on the day after the conference (Sunday October 23) is also being considered.

Please note the conference date, Saturday, October 22, in your diary, join us and let others know about this event!
