5th ANNUAL PLAID PARADE
Come decked out in plaid with your bike fit for a parade!
The ride begins at 11am at Cycle Salvation on the side entrance of McLeod Street.
After the parade come for a pancake breakfast and open house at Causeway Work Centre!
This year the plaid parade will be raising bike donations and awareness of the important work social enterprise bike shop Cycle Salvation. As a member of the Causeway group of Social Businesses, Cycle Salvation provides training and employment in the field of bike mechanics to people who are economically disadvantaged while at the same time diverting bikes destined for scrap and landfill sites.
Donations of adult bikes can be dropped off both at the beginning and at the end of the Plaid Parade. Bike donations are also accepted on an ongoing basis at Cycle Salvation (473 Bronson), Dovercourt Recreation Centre (411 Dovercourt) and Heartwood House (404 MacArthur). More info on Cycle Salvation.
