email me a picture of you riding that day to lisa.vanlint (insert@) uhn.ca


Learn the rules of the road and how to stay afloat on 2 wheels. Don’t bring your bike as it’s an indoor presentation. People last year LOVED this and found it tremendously useful and confidence-building (Plus, there’s a little bike swag at the session).

Date: Tuesday, June 11

Time: 12 – 1 PM

Place: Princess Margaret Cancer Centre M-805 main floor conf. room

RSVP to lisa.vanlint (insert@) uhn.ca


These are great outdoor huddles to learn some bike maintenance by real pros. Staff have been clamouring for more of these sessions and left knowing their stuff (plus, there’s a little bike swag at the session).
