August 10, 2006 – CYCLISTS WANTED on Saturday, August 12th at 9:00 a.m:
As was mentioned in the last edition of the Waterfront Trail News, from August 11th to 20th in what may be the largest art installation ever in Toronto, car traffic will be replaced with bike lanes and a kilometer-long stretch of 12,000 red geraniums and a picnic lawn the length of almost ten football fields. Two four-storey sculptures built (with more than 600 bicycles) will highlight the temporary new section of the popular Toronto section of the Waterfront Trail.
On Saturday, August 12th at 9:00 a.m., the Toronto Waterfront Revitalization Corp is inviting all cyclists to come down to the waterfront to help officially open this extension of the Waterfront Trail. They are hoping to get anywhere from 50-100 cyclists at this event and would like everyone to meet at the bike arch at York and Queens Quay. They will have a ribbon across the arch and would like to have all of the cyclists ride through it.
We are very excited about this temporary extension of the Waterfront Trail along Queens Quay – currently a gap in the Trail for cyclists – and hope that you will be able to attend to show your support.
To RSVP for this event or for further information, please contact Tanya Hardy at 416-214-1344 ext 239 or firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.towaterfront.ca
