  • Free bike safety checks and tune-ups
  • Bike clincis, bike blessing, and bike art
  • Community and cycling advocacy info
  • David Suzuki Foundation #GotMilkweed campaign is back!
  • The North American Native Plant Society will have native wildflowers, plants, and shrubs available for your garden or balcony.
  • Friends of Christie Pits Arts Crawl will be happening at the same time with over 60 artists!

Kids Bike Swap!

Has your 4-12 year old outgrown their bike? If so, you are invited to participate in this year’s Children’s Bike Swap taking place during Bike with Mike.

How it works

  • Drop off your child’s pre-loved bike at Christie Pits Park starting at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, May 27.
  • The bike must be in safe and rideable condition. We reserve the right to refuse any bicycle.
  • Fill out a donation agreement and receive an exchange token.
  • Check in the bike at one of the stations where a mechanic will perform a basic safety check. Mechanics will not be servicing or cleaning bikes.
  • Return between 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. with your exchange token to select another bike.
