'Ride-In' movie event in Gage Park celebrates cycling in Hamilton
If you are noticing more people out and about this month on two wheels, that’s because September is Bike Month and Hamilton is getting into the spirit of things.
Bike Month is usually held from the last week of May to the final week of June but the coronavirus pandemic forced organizers to postpone until September.
During Bike Month, participating cities host a series of cycling events and challenges to get people out of the house and travelling their neighbourhoods in a safe and sustainable way.
Hamilton is one of many Ontario municipalities who participate.
For this reason, Hamilton Bike is hosting a special screening of Ferris Beuller’s Day Off at Gage Park next Saturday (Sept. 19).
The ‘Ride-In Movie’ event encourages all participants to ride to Gage Park and park their wheels at the Gage Park hub at Maplewood. The event runs from 7:30 to 9:30.
Guests will be screened and everyone is asked to bring their own chairs, blankets, snacks and beverages.
Physical distancing is required and will be enforced.
Hamilton Bike Share is also sharing a number of features and local stories about cycling in the city to promote the lifestyle, and sharing some tips on how to safe while pedalling city streets.
