TBN city walks will stay virtual
TBN's Virtual City Walks on Zoom will continue every second Sunday, due to the difficulty of staying distanced in a real-life group. However, for anyone interested in actually doing the walk, John Burdett will provide a RideWithGPS route, plus additional information to make the walks easier and more fun to do. The route and links to additional information will be included in the calendar entry.
Sewer work scheduled at Etienne Brule Park
A word of warning to our Humber River riders: The city of Toronto is planning work to replace a major sewer pipe in the area, which may cause some inconvenience. The work is scheduled to end in May.

TBN has three movie nights scheduled for the coming weeks.

Our favourite volunteers
A baker's dozen of generous TBN members will receive gifts of a TBN jersey this year, based on their volunteer activities in the year gone by. That's up from the eight names announced at the annual meeting and takes account of additional volunteer activities in the final months of the year. The full list of recognized volunteers is:
John Anderson, Paul Bourdeau, John Burdett, David Gagné , Danny Harvey, Carole Hill, Dave Mader, Mick O’Meara, Andrew Paterson, Dinsmore Roach, Michael Varrick, Terry Walsh and Catherine Whitfield.
Many thanks to all of you.
Zwifting tips and tricks
TBN's Zwift Meetups programme has been a quiet success these last couple of months. Virtual ridership is rising by the week: we have 20+ current invitees, and six to 12 participants on a typical ride. Most people have a smart trainer, which connects up to a computer and/or TV, but you can also join the rides with a classic (dumb) trainer. See TBN's Zwift Meetups page for background information, and also check out the "How To Get Started On Zwift With a Classic Trainer" page on Zwift Insider.
If you are interested in Zwift rides, either as a participant or as a volunteer virtual ride leader, please email email@example.com with your preferences (day, time, distance and duration), and whether you are willing to host an event. Details about upcoming Zwift meetups and other rides are on the TBN website.
