Ride a bike, and loads of other stuff

This has to be one of the most rounded events ever. Life Cycle, in its first year, really has something for everyone. In addition to the 25-K, 50-K and 100-K rides, there is a beginner cycle/walk activity, and a bike rodeo for kids to teach them the rules of the road, and a mountain bike skills lesson. You can also take a Zumba, yoga or seniors fitness class, as well as a CPR training session. Chris Crawley, coauthor of Younger Next Year, will be speaking, and there will be a health fair, with booths where you can get your blood sugar and blood pressure checked.

Take a free yoga class at the ROM
