Sunshine all day, bikes everywhere, jazz in the air and the picturesque Distillery District were the backdrop for the Toronto MEC Bikefest this past weekend and well, WOW, what a great event!

What better opportunity to discuss mountain biking in one of Canada’s urban centres, than right in the middle of the cycling atmosphere and buzz surrounding Bikefest.

I had the pleasure of meeting many individuals interested in IMBA Canada’s national mountain bike advocacy role, but I particularly enjoyed being able to showcase some of the great work that IMBA Canada affiliated clubs have been doing in Toronto, for example Toronto Off-Road Bicycling Association’s (TORBA) work with the City of Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation department in the Don Valley.


Thanks again to Eric and Diana from MEC for all of your help.

Look forward to next year’s event!
