Good morning Bike Rally!
We have some exciting news to share on this long weekend and we'll want to move quickly next week.
We've just received approval to hold a Bike Rally Thirty 4 Thirty Spin-a-thon at Nathan Philips Square on Monday, April 24 and Tuesday, April 25.
In a nutshell, the Friends for Life Bike Rally will be honouring PWA's 30th anniversary with a 30-hour "spin-a-thon." It will be 30 hours for 30 years - that's where "Thirty 4 Thirty" comes from. We'll continually ride bikes on trainers, recruit, fundraise, and engage with the media, all with the Toronto sign and the reflecting pool right behind us. Through coordination with City Hall and the media, we're arranging quite a bit of activity, building towards a major media event at 12 noon on Tuesday, April 25.
We know you've got questions, and will want to make time to volunteer or stop by. We'll have all the answers for you on Monday in another email from us and on www.bikerally.org, too.
Of course, we'll need spinners at various times to cover the 30 hours and a number of other asks, so you may be contacted individually before then.
This is an incredible opportunity to share the story of the Bike Rally and PWA broadly, and we're very, very excited. Together, we can create an amazing event, attract more Participants, and raise more money.
We hope all of you will enjoy the long weekend ahead, and watch out for more Thirty 4 Thirty details this coming Monday.
