June is almost here, and with that comes perfect cycling weather! June is traditionally Bike Month across the country and a number of major cities are taking part. Here's a roundup of free events to look forward to:

  • Vancouver: Bike To Work Week runs May 28-June 1. Each day, there will be "Commuter Stations" set up around the city where you can take advantage of free refreshments, bike mechanic services and chances to win prizes. By registering for Bike To Work Week and logging your trips, you also get entered to win daily prizes.
  • Edmonton: Throughout the month, there are lots of events taking place. On Fridays at 7AM, there will be breakfasts at various restaurants around the city. Each Wednesday from 4-6PM, they will be hosting "Mocktails on the Bridge" at Ezio Faraone Park, where you can have a drink and get your bike tuned up. Other events planned for the month include a bike-in movie night, bike art workshops, bike salons and more. For the full calendar of events, visit the Bikeology website.
  • Toronto: Bike Month kicks off on May 28 with the Group Commute and Pancake Breakfast. Groups of commuters will be meeting at a series of city and community start points, then converging at Yonge and Bloor for a ride down to City Hall. If you participate in the ride, you'll receive a free Bike Month t-shirt and enjoy a free pancake breakfast at City Hall. There are dozens of events running through the month, including group rides, free pancake breakfasts, used bike sales, free bike repairs and more.

    • I'd love to get a free tune-up for my bike - the valves need adjusting and the dealer says it'll cost about $400 - then again my bike has an inline 4 cylinder 1300cc engine that delivers about 145 horsepower.

      Somehow I don't think it's going to happen !!!!

    • Looks like the Toronto one is starting now near my place... too lazy to join them, I'll make my own breakfast. Anyone know when they do the free repair or tune-up days?

      MEC Bikefest is on June 23 in the Distillery District. They'll be doing free basic repairs and tune-ups.

      Nice! One of my bikes needs a repair and another one a tune-up. Could save up to $100, if they are able to fix the damage.
