Cycling & Eco Fair: September 10!

2014
The GSA and C.U. Cycling have returned this year with the Cycling and Eco Fair! Come on out for a rad time on September 10 (rain date September 17) from 10am to 4pm. There will be plenty of folks there to talk to about cycling and all forms of vaguely cycling-related topics.

Our friends from Cycle Salvation will be there providing some sweet, sweet FREE tune-ups. Last year was NUTS, so try to plan ahead. We weren’t able to fit everyone in, so try to soak up as much bike knowledge to do some repairs on your own!

The Eco Fair is brought to you by the GSA and CU Cycling with the support of CUPE 4600.

✓ This event is free.
✓ This event is wheelchair accessible.*
✓ This event is family-friendly.
✓ This event is dry.

So who’s gonna be there

The GSA and C.U. Cycling will be there repping it up… but I’m sure you’re curious to know who else will be attending, too! Our list is consistently being updated as more groups confirm:

  • CUPE 4600

  • CPAWS
  • Ecology Ottawa
  • CFS
  • EnviroCentre
  • Carleton Food Centre
  • OPIRG (adjoining event)
