“BIKE CITY” AT THE MARKET GALLERY HIGHLIGHTS TORONTO’S CYCLING HISTORY – UNTIL NOVEMBER 17TH

The Market Gallery occupies the second floor of the St. Lawrence Market (south building). Over many years, exhibits have focused on TORONTO and its lengthy history – from subways to jazz clubs to world wars – and now comes the bicycle and its impact on the city’s past.

On display – 13 TORONTO-made bikes; archival photographs, advertisements, posters and artifacts from private and public collections; the city’s cycling success stories, and our Bicycle Locking Ring and Post, created here and used in cities around the world.

Riding a bicycle in TORONTO can oftentimes be death-defying. As the city grows, we’re getting better at building and maintaining bike lanes, but there’s still a very long way to go.

City councillors should take some time to visit “BIKE CITY” at the Market Gallery, 95 Front Street East, Tuesday to Friday 10 am to 4 pm; Saturdays 9 am to 4 pm. Adults $8; seniors & youth $7.
