Bike Share is Celebrating Pride Season!

06/07/2022

Bike Share Toronto is ready for Pride season and spreading the love! 

 

 

Happy Pride Month, Toronto! This month we intend to fully serve the children and bring it to the roadway instead of the runway. We’ve kicked off the month of June with a bang, with much more fun on the way! Bike Share Toronto is proud to support the 2SLGBTQ+ community, while also helping Torontonians move around the city to Pride events this season. We appreciate that the 2SLGBTQ+ community loves Bike Share and are looking forward to returning that love. We hope you bring friends and family along for the ride, so go ahead and join us on two wheels!

 

 

It’s super exciting that Pride events are back to being live and in-person this year! Whether you already attended the Toronto Blue Jays Pride Weekend Games with us, or have plans to attend the upcoming Trans March, Street Fair, or biking to the Pride Parade, keep your eyes peeled for our limited edition Pride bikes and tag us on social for your chance to be featured, and to show your Pride with #BikeShareTO! 

 

Let’s get you excited for a June packed with celebrations:

 

Toronto Blue Jays x Bike Share Toronto: Pride Weekend Kick-Off  

 

 

 

 

Rainbows, baseball, and sunshine, could it get any better? Bike Share Toronto and the Toronto Blue Jays united in an EPIC and fun partnership that even got ACE excited and in the rider’s seat! The active transportation and sports world teamed up for the June 3rd and 4th home games, helping fans get to/from the game to cheer on our Toronto Blue Jays in Pride spirit. This partnership offered some awesome perks for our Bike Share Community, which we hope you didn’t miss out on!

 

Our promo video featuring Ace has been favourited by the community (even shared by the Mayor!) and seen by tens of thousands of fans across our social media. We are overwhelmed with the love that has been shown through likes, comments, and social sharing. 

 

PRO TIP: Make sure you are signed up for our newsletter to avoid missing out on exclusive offers and future partnerships. 

 

 

Bike Share Community fans who have signed up for our newsletter were sent an exclusive offer for a 20% discount on Toronto Blue Jays tickets for seats in sections 100 to 500! In return, Bike Share sent code BIKEJAYS to ticket holders to take advantage of  $1 rides to get to and from the games on June 3rd and 4th. Did you ride to the game repping Bike Share Toronto?

 

 

Our team was ready at our Bremner Blvd/Rees St station with Valet service right across from the Rogers Centre.Our Mobile Community Ambassadors had a great time greeting game-goers, answering questions, giving out the exclusive  $1 ride code and joining in on the Pride fun. Next time you’re headed to a Jays game, take Bike Share for a hassle-free way to get to the game with friends!

 

 

Hello, Pride Bikes! 

 

 

We’re adding a rainbow of colours to our green fleet! Have you spotted one of the 40 special edition Pride bikes in the system? The bikes were a huge hit, and game-goers jumped at the opportunity to pose with our bikes, spreading the love.

 

 

Missed your chance to see the Pride bikes at the Jays Pride Weekend Kick-off? Don’t sweat it, the rest of our Pride bikes have been added to the fleet, so if you’re lucky enough to see one, snap a picture and tag us using @BikeShareTO for your chance to be featured. Ride with Pride! Try riding something that won’t disappoint this Pride season and try out a different type of leather!

 

 

Drag Queens Love Bike Share Toronto! 

 

 

Did you know many Queens are avid bikers and use our system? We think that’s pretty awesome!

This month, keep your eyes peeled on our social media for some fun with local Queens @tiffany.boxx and @thevirgoqueen.to! At Bike Share Toronto, we love and support the art of drag and gender expression and appreciate the love we receive from our queer community.
