Saying goodbye to a pioneer in its field

The Community Bike Network was established some 24 years ago to help a then fledgling bicycle community have a voice.  After years of tireless advocacy for the bicycle loving community of Toronto, the organization is closing its doors to make way for the associations who have generated from their humble roots.  The Bike Network has become redundant to the larger associations whose paths where forged by the network’s simple beginnings. Involved in the birth of bike sharing, instrumental in the TTC’s bike racks and strong advocates for extended bike lanes throughout the city, the organization has proven its worth and has thus turned its work over to a new generation of bicycle enthusiasts who will continue to fight for  cyclists’ rights.   If you would like to read more on the story, click here
