Bike Jam

Spur will host its second annual Spurfest bike jam. Beginning in Central Park, cyclists of all shapes and sizes (some in head-to-toe costume) will embark on a group ride with lively music on portable stereos, atop bikes equipped with festive lights, on a trip punctuated by the occasional surprise pit-stop for a dance party, a quick snack, or an unexpected cameo appearance. This is a free and public event where participants will be encouraged to donate what-they-can to the programming partner for the evening, the Rainbow Trout Music Festival. Hosted by William ‘Sugarbeard’ Belford of Natural Cycleworks.

Spur is a national festival of politics, art and ideas and is a catalyst for change in Canada.

Through nationally relevant and locally nuanced discussions, presentations and performances, the festival seeks to spur its participants to action on issues affecting Canadians. Feisty, multi-partisan, forward-looking, and solution-driven, this national railway of ideas will provide Canada with vital new cultural infrastructure for the 21st century.

Founded in 2013, the festival has already grown from three to five Canadian cities, with plans for further expansion across the country. Produced by the Literary Review of Canada in partnership with Diaspora Dialogues, Spur prides itself on its community partnerships, cultural connections and a focus on accessibility and diversity.
