From the femme organizers:

It's time to ride with pride 🚲 ! The Dyke March is happening again and Dykes on Bicycles is back to bring a strong visibility of the one, two and three-and-more-wheeled queers of our city. 

Dykes on Bicycles includes but is not limited to road bikers, mountain bikers, commuters, racers, cruisers, hybrids, unicycles, tri-cyclist, cargo bikers, scooters, e-bikes, polo bikers, tourers, tandemers and tall bikers, BMXers, 3 speeders, single speeders, fixies, couriers and cyclo-crossers and all folks on wheels!

We are an inclusive contingent of the Dyke March. If you feel you belong on your bike, please ride with us. We will ride critical mass style in the Dyke March on Saturday, June 23rd during Pride 2018. Are you from out of town? Hope on a BikeShare bike or borrow one from a pal. 

🚲 12PM: Sign-making, Bike decorating and march prep @ Church and Hayden
🚲 1PM: Dyke March lines up (Dykes on Bicycles will be toward the front of the March).
🚲 2PM: We Ride & March! Route: From Church, we'll ride west on Bloor, south on Yonge and east on College, finishing up at Allan Gardens.
🚲 4PM: Post-march activities in Allan Gardens, including performances and hanging out.

Decorations will be on-hand for you to spruce up your ride, and please feel free to bring your own. Volunteer mechanics will be present before the ride for tire inflation.

BEFORE THE MARCH
🚲 Need to do some bike maintenance before the march, or in general? Ask helpful friends, visit your local bike shop, or get your hands dirty and learn about fixing your bike at one of the many DIY run spaces in Toronto (bikeSauce, Bike Pirates, Bikechain, Evergreen Bikeworks)

bikeSauce: 341 Broadview Avenue

bikeSauce is a 100% volunteer-run DIY bike repair space and community hub with a simple mandate to offer a space where you can fix your own bicycle using our tools and parts while receiving help from our volunteers. It is also a social space where you can come and meet with your neighbours and figure out how to improve our city.
