Pride in our Queer cycling community. A 131 members now. Sunday's June 12 Cloudy. No rain in forecast ---- Peter Marczyk: studing social work at YorkU. is your tour guide on Sunday the 12th.

Today we start the tour on Wards Island. We leisurely tour the island's many bike paths and historic homes, before head down to wooden bike path by the lake, cycling to Centre Island and then onto Harlan’s Point. There are some male riders that may want to stroll aka cruise the Nude (Bum) Beach and leave the group. The main group and then circle back to Centre Island parkland picnic area, near beach and food stands, for some leisure time. (BTW the Ride Leader always travels with tire patch kit, pump and small medic-kit).

What to bring. Pack a few sandwiches, water or pop. There are concession food stands near picnic area, if you’re not domesticated. We strongly advise you wear a Helmut, mandatory for those under 18.

Er... this post doesn't seem to mention the date of the event. I found it by going to your web site, but you might want to edit the post to include it here.

I would love to do this but I don't think I can ride a bicycle anymore! It would be nice to do a group walking tour with a picnic or something!
