Charlie's FreeWheels' event, Bikes & Beats, will be a fabulously fun and spirited celebration of bicycles.
Join us for an exceptional evening of entertainment and inspiration as we consider the impact that bicycles have in our lives and our cities.
Curated by Toronto's very own jazz legend, Tony Quarrington, the night will also feature exceptional music performances and spoken word poetry that will convey some of the many ways that bicycles help to build social equity in our communities.
Performers will include:
Tony Quarrington, accompanied by Zoey Adams
* Zoey Adams will also manage the musical talent at the event

What should I wear?
Dress is bicycle chic! You can wear whatever you'd like. If you so choose, you can wear whatever you'd wear on a bicycle. Lycra? Fine by us. Or how about "divided skirts" or "bloomers costumes" (some special vintage clothing worn by pioneering bicycle ladies)?
Will I receive a charitable receipt?
Yes, you will receive a receipt for $50, half of the ticket cost.
Who should I contact if I have additional questions about the evening?
