Picture a cyclist, and what do you see: a well-to-do downtowner riding a “fixie”, or a sporty suburbanite clad in Lycra? Look a little deeper though, and you may be surprised by what you find.
BIKE MINDS is a storytelling event featuring positive and inspiring bike-related stories from a diverse range of storytellers. Our mission is to change the way you think about people who ride bikes.
Since 2018, we've run a dozen events in Toronto and Ottawa and where we've heard stories from a wide range of backgrounds, including newcomers, neighbours, civil servants, and community leaders, who've all had unique and powerful experiences related to cycling. Now we are continuing with our third virtual event!
Join us online on Friday March 5, 2021 at 12PM EST for an amazing lineup of storytellers from around the world!
The event theme is Bikes+Children. We'll hear stories both about children who cycle, and adults passionate about getting more kids cycling from Chicago, Copenhagen, Calgary, and Toronto.
