If you have a bicycle, a bicycle helmet, a white shirt and the time Saturday to help raise awareness about bicycling in our community, please come out to the Together We Travel Ride for Angels event in Waterloo.
Details: Registration at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 20 at the parking lot for the Centre of International Governance Innovation, on Father David Bauer Drive in Waterloo. It's a roughly three-kilometre ride around the Waterloo core: an urban ride with police assistance. Should be completed by 6 p.m.
Must-haves: helmet, white shirt or T-shirt, signed waiver (at the registration desk)
This event has grown out of last year's memorial bicycle ride for Barrie Conrod, killed last year in Waterloo Region as he was out for a sunny Sunday ride with his spouse and riding partner, Heather Caron.
Together We Travel could become an annual event, to bring attention to the hazards cyclists face while sharing the road with motor vehicles, and showing motorists that the cycling community is greater than many of them may believe.
There are a couple of information sites you can visit, here at Indiegogo, where organizers are raising funds to pay for some of the costs associated with the ride; and here on Facebook, where there are details of the event. And here's the Record story from earlier this week about the ride.
The weather should be perfect. Hope to see you there.
