On Your Mark… Get Set… Ride!

The UHN Bike Challenge is here!!!  Throughout the month of June, UHN Wellness is encouraging employees to put those car keys and public transit passes away, to dust off those helmets and bicycles, and to start riding!

Also, throughout June, in partnership with the UHN Energy & Environment team, UHN Wellness invites employees to attend the following FREE Cycling Workshops:

 Road Ethics and Cycling Courtesies Workshop: Tuesday, June 7

Learn your rights and responsibilities as a cyclist or a driver.  What laws and fines apply to which?  How to bike assertively or defensively (and when). Plus, what to do in the unfortunate event of a collision.  No bike needed as it’s inside.  A new workshop at UHN!

  • Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, Room M-805:  Tuesday, June 7, 12:00-1:00pm

Advanced Bike Repair Workshops: Tuesday June 14 & 21

A hands-on (yes, bring your bike) workshop to go deep into how to fix your bike works, fix squeaky brakes, loose chains, tighten spokes, straighten wheel and more.

  • Toronto Rehab – Lyndhurst/Rumsey Centre, Lyndhurst Lawn: Tuesday, June 21, 12:00-1:00pm
