To celebrate Bike Month 2013, we're inviting Mayor Ford to take a spin on our wheels for a day!

The purpose of this challenge is to offer the Mayor a chance to experience the joys of cycling in the city, learn more about some of the frustrations cyclists face and provide a platform for the community to discuss urban cycling issues.

If you'd like to challenge the Mayor to take a spin please sign the official challenge here: https://www.change.org/petitions/challenge-mayor-ford-to-cycle-for-a-day

Once we gather enough support we'll connect with the Mayor's office to design a cycling route for his daily activities within the city's core. If this isn't possible, we'll propose a route for him to give cycling a try - possibly Queen's Park to City Hall.

We also invite all other new cyclists in the city to join the Mayor in experiencing all the benefits of recreational and commuting cycling!
