Slow Down the City: A Series of Alternative Transportation Events throughout the Month of July

We’re pleased to announce a month-long series of workshops here at CIVIC SPACE that will explore the pace of our automotive city and how we might slow it down with our actions and transportation choices. We’ll be teaming with with local bike co-op City Cyclery and local longboarder Troy Linton to host four events throughout the month of July that will use skill sharing and group rides to open a dialog about the pace of Windsor.

All Slow Down the City events are free and open to everyone. Bring your bike, board, or come without. Looking forward to seeing you there!


Monday, July 8th (7pm) – Workshop #1: Bike Maintenance with City Cyclery

Monday, July 22nd (7pm) – Workshop #2: Bike Restoration with City Cyclery

Thursday, July 25th (7pm) – Workshop #3: Longboarding with Troy Linton

    I am surprised that you don’t include pedestrians in this initiative – your omission signals a misunderstanding of active transportation issues. With walkers outnumbering cyclists five to one on Windsor streets, you’ve eliminated the largest group that is likely to benefit an active transportation transformation.

    • You raise a valid point, but we are not attempting to transform anything directly. We are merely getting people together to better understand the methods they use to get around. I’m not sure how that would translate to a pedestrian workshop, but I’m open to suggestions.
