Closing Early on Monday May 24 (at 7pm)

Sauce will be closing early on Monday, May 24, at 7pm (instead of the usual 9pm) because there are fireworks. And who wants to miss fireworks, really?

Please join us for a group ride to Ashbridges Bay (at the foot of Coxwell Ave)! We’ve been told that this is THE place to catch the show. The ride leaves at 7pm sharp from BikeSauce (717 Queen East).

B.Y.O.Blanket. Hope to see everyone there! Happy Fireworks Day!!!

Book Launch Saturday May 22, 2:30-4:00pm at Velotique

Laura Robinson will be at Velotique (1592 Queen East) to launch her latest book. The Cyclist BikeList, “a great book for cyclists of all ages”. Laura Robinson combines fascinating history with useful and fun information. The book features riding superstars like Lance Armstrong as well as the kids from the Chippewas of Nawash First Nation, whose mountain bike team is coached by Robinson.

This is your chance to meet Laura and the kids she coaches, plus get a signed copy of this great kids’ book.
