1. Save Jarvis and Other Bikelanes: TONIGHT!

Believe it or not, tomorrow (or Wednesday) is the day that City Council debates and votes on the removal of the Jarvis Street Bikelanes! But don’t forget: it’s not just Jarvis! It’s also parts of: Dupont St, Bloor St West, Pharmacy Ave, Birchmount Rd,  and Rogers Rd!!! (What the ?!?!?)

So, if you haven’t already, please take a moment to email and call Mayor Ford and your Councillor (or even all of City Council). Do it tonight! Tomorrow will be too late!

More info, including links to Councillors’ contact info, petition, and more, see last week’s Sauce Weekly.

3. Volunteer Seminar: Wed July 13, 7pm

Before this week’s volunteer meeting (taking place on Wednesday at 7pm at the shop, see #2 above), there will be a 30 minute bicycle mechanic seminar (also at the shop) for volunteers who want to learn a new skill.

The topic of the seminar is to be determined by the people who show up. Come by the shop at 6:30 this Wednesday if interested!
