Mayor Rob Ford has lots of opinions about cycling in Toronto but has he ever ridden our streets? This Summer 2013, we're inviting Mayor Ford to take a spin on our wheels for a day!
The purpose of this challenge is to offer the Mayor a chance to experience the joys of cycling in the city, learn more about some of the frustrations and provide a platform for the community to discuss urban cycling issues.
If you'd like to challenge the Mayor to take a spin please sign below and we'll let him know! **(See the note at the end of this message about what information will be displayed publically)
Once we gather enough support we'll connect with the Mayor's office to design a cycling route for his daily activities within the city's core. If this isn't possible, we'll propose a route for him to give cycling a try - possibly Queen's Park to City Hall.
We also invite all other new cyclists in the city to join the Mayor in experiencing all the benefits of recreational and commuting cycling!

**And not to worry, although the system may ask for your street address and email, only your name and city will be displayed publically. In addition, the Challenge organizer has no access to further details. If you'd like to support the Challenge but are uncomfortable with providing certain information please send a private message to the Challenge organizer here: http://urbanbandit.ca/connect-with-the-urban-bandit/
