Gay West Bicycle Club

The only LGBTQ cycling club in Canada

"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

Gay West Bicycle Club welcome’s the 2015 Pan Am / ParaPan Am Game Athletes to Toronto’s LGBTQ community. Join our annual Pride Rides. Gay west Bicycle Club is not associate with the 519 Community Centre Pride House (Toronto) TO on Church St. It's disingenuous for 519 Community Centre Pride House (Toronto) TO To mislead visiting athletes that Toronto only has the Church-Wellesley Street Gay Village. The Danforth also known as Greektown: A trendy area with lots of gay and lesbian residents as well as gay-owned businesses. (Subway: Broadview, Chester or Pape) College Street: Little Italy around Clinton has a decided gay/artsy flair. (Streetcar: College) and LESLIEVILLE Gay boys and girls in search of affordable homes and starving artists being, well, starving artists are transforming this gritty neighbourhood with great restaurants and quirky shops. the west end of the city has gradually carved out a place on the map, known locally as the “QUEER WEST VILLAGE,” or Queer West Toronto. Home to the Gay West Bicycle Club, the largest LGBTQ cycling club in Canada. There has been a significant queer presence in this area for several years, as a viable gay alternative to the Church Street Village.

About the club

We are the only independent gay and lesbian cycling club in Canada. Season runs from May to October for all genders and ages. The club was founded in 2003 by Michel F. Paré. There is no ride leader; members are encouraged to host weekly rides. Example; Men only ride, women only ride or mixed company, doesn't have to be 100 people, ten people would be idea. Our current membership, is 100 riders as of November 1st, 2014.

We have no interest in joining the PrideHouse Toronto. Gay West Bicycle Club host it's own annual Pride Ride in conjunction with the Toronto Queer West Arts Festival (Queer West Fest) Our members are looking forward to the 2015 Pan/ParaPan Am Games. Out of town athletes and visitors, are welcome on any of our club rides. You can find us on Facebook lhttps://www.facebook.com/groups/7366448476/
