Gay West Bicycle Club

A group Toronto friends, who like to cycle together.

Queer West Community Network

"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through." -- Ernest Miller Hemingway
