Outdoor Training Kick-Off at Sweet Pete’s @ Sweet Pete's Bike Shop
Mar 30 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Our good friends at Sweet Pete’s will be hosting a training kick-off evening for Bike Rally participants on Saturday, March 30, 6:00pm – 9:00pm at their store at 1204 Bloor Street West. They will run short 15 minute sessions on:

  • how to fix a flat;
  • how to estimate a good bike fit; and
  • advice on gear and apparel.

Come out to catch up with your Bike Rally family, pick up any gear you might be missing to start your outdoor training, and brush up your bike knowledge from the experts at Sweet Pete’s. Whether you’re new to the Bike Rally or a seasoned veteran, there’s something for everyone to get you ready to hit the road. Sweet Pete’s will also be providing 20% off parts and accessories (excluding Garmin), and 10% off bikes.
