July 4th’s hot summer night may have been celebrated for Independence Day down south in the U.S.A.
But up here in Toronto Canada The Moto Social held another gathering of fellow riders from all gears of life.
On the first Wednesday of the month during the riding season, hundreds of motorcycles fill the
streets parked in a magnificent fashion. On this particular Wednesday it was Adelaide and
Augusta in downtown Toronto.
As we rode up to the main address the moto social had provided us, it was as if the
floodgates of Motorcycle City were open. Bike after Bike already lined up from kilometers out.
The moto social is more than just about riding. The purpose of this event is to bring everyone
together in a community event. Most often the motosocial is held near small businesses, that
we, the community, can come together and support during our night out.
I enjoyed the mom and pop restaurants situated in the area. There’s a sense of
welcoming and home as we dined in. Through the large storefront window we watched an
endless array of motorcycles. Good food and motorcycles, What more can you ask for?
Cruisers, cafe racers, sport bikes and even ape bar baggers were all spotted on
Wednesday July 4th. What a sight to see. You could hear the echoes of the motorcycles pulling
in from kilometers away. The local residents watched in awe. Groups of riders walked the
streets, enjoying each other's company and laughing the night away. Some hiding each others
keys pretending as if the other had lost them. I chuckled. That prank never gets old.
This event is held only once a month, and is definitely worth taking out the time to
attend. Gather up Your close riding buddies and organize a mini cruise. Solo rider? No problem,
ride down and meet new faces at the social.
As we gathered around our bikes to ride out from the event, we figured we’d go for a
cruise through downtown Toronto. The bright lights and and cool breeze made it a perfect way
to end our night. Till next time. We will be back again!
