IT'S FREEZING - LET'S GO FOR A BIKE RIDE
It's the most wonderful time of the year for cyclists - the annual Coldest Day Of The Year Ride. What better way to glide into icy February than to celebrate cold-weather riding? The fun starts in Queen's Park Saturday (February 1) at high noon and ends at Dufferin Grove Park, where skating and a warm campfire await. We checked the forecast and it's not going to be all that bad temp-wise: -2C° with some flurries. So saddle up. Should be picture-perfect. cycleto.ca/bike-winter.
PUT THIS IN YOUR PIPE ORGAN
Metropolitan United Church, known for its 54-bell carillon - besides it's many good works in the downtown core, of course - needs six figures to refurbish its world-famous organ, which was the largest in the country when it was installed by Casavant Frères in 1930. You can help by attending a benefit concert Saturday (February 1), featuring performances by the Bach Children's Chorus and pianist Eleanor Daley, among others. 7:30 pm. $20, free if you're under 18. 56 Queen East. metunited.org.
