Memorial Ride – Ride for Charlie 2008

Thursday evening there will be a memorial ride to honour Charlie Prinsep, a Toronto cyclist killed while on a cross-country tour. All cyclists are welcome to ride in solidarity. The ride will be through Cabbagetown, down to the lake and West to the memorial tree for fallen cyclists. Cyclists are encouraged to participate, even if you didn’t know Charlie. This is not a protest ride but a ride for the love of cycling and in memory of all of the cyclists we’ve lost in careless accidents.

Ride For Charlie
(organized by friends of Charlie Prinsep)
Thursday August 28th
Riders are encouraged to meet at Jet Fuel Coffee at 7pm

Rob Piontek – Remembered and Celebrated

Rob Piontek was an accomplished skater who was tragically killed by a hit and run driver while walking home last August.  Thursday afternoon marks the Grand Opening of the Skateboard Park built in his honour.  Great to see the city building more and more parks for youth.

Come out and celebrate the life of a great person at your new favourite park.
