Bring your bike (or any set of self-propelled wheels), bring your friends, bring your family, decorate your bike and come donning blue — Arctic or Elsa inspired. Participants are encouraged to share a photo of themselves on social media with #iceride before hitting the streets.
Biking laps, saving polar ice caps.
Pre-ride activities begin at noon at Greenpeace Garden at 33 Cecil Street. The convoy will depart at 1 p.m. and stop at various “climate change landmarks” across the city. The tour is inclusive to all ages and levels of ability.
Last year, over 14 000 individuals in over 100 cities took part in Ice Rides across the globe. This year, thousands will do the same in support of an “Arctic Sanctuary, not an Arctic oil spill,” as Ice Ride Toronto’s event page writes.
On Saturday, Oct. 4, we wear blue!
