RIDE FOR HEART 2019 – Volunteers needed
TBN is looking for volunteers to help at Ride for Heart, a once-a-year chance to ride the Gardiner Expressway and Don Valley Parkway with thousands of other cyclists. It's a car-free, cost-free ride for our two groups of volunteer riders, who can meet up after the ride for a beer-and-wings celebration at a local pub, courtesy of Ride for Heart.
As in previous years, we need 40-50 “Ride Ambassadors,” who will wear supplied Ride for Heart T-shirts and help throughout the route with roadside assistance such as minor mechanical issues or calling for first-aid.
And the organisers have also asked TBN to supply at least 15 pairs of volunteers for the new “Ride marshals” role, to ensure rider safety along the route, including urging participants to slow down and/or take greater care. The marshals, riding in pairs, will wear the new TBN jerseys, plus identifying arm bands supplied by Ride for Heart.
The ride takes place on Sunday, June 2. Please register no later than April 30.

Report Bike Parking Issues
The City of Toronto has launched a free web app called BikeSpace to collect data from cyclists to help improve bicycle parking. Using the BikeSpace app, cyclists can highlight areas where new bike parking is needed and report broken and full bike racks, as well as spots occupied by abandoned bikes. Download it to your smartphone from the Apple or Google app stores.
