For 20 years, TBN members have cycled on the Gardiner Expressway and Don Valley Parkway on a Sunday in June, by volunteering to be ride ambassadors for the Heart & Stroke Ride for Heart (this year sponsored by Manulife.) Note that as a volunteer, the normal registration fee to participate in the ride is waived.
TBN Ambassadors are again required to be the "eyes and ears" of the event - riding in pairs, guiding traffic and alerting organizers if if cyclists suffer medical distress or run into mechanical problems. You will not be expected to provide first aid and will only be asked to assist with basic mechanical issues and flats if you feel comfortable doing so.
This year, the ride takes place on Sunday June 3. You'll receive your ride ambassador jersey and be briefed on details at 7 am on the day of the ride, at the TBN booth at the starting point at the CNE grounds.
To participate, please register here and plan to arrive bright and early on Sunday, June 3rd. For more information, please contact Joe Hickey at firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: We also need volunteers to help out at the booth. For that, please contact Dan Richards at email@example.com
