AICC Recyclers Next Event - Toronto Annual Meeting
Monday, July 8, 2019
Posted by: Alyce Ryan
Attention, AICC Recyclers!
It’s time to start planning our next Team Recyclers cycling event, and thanks to our generous host, Kim Nelson, it will be fantastic. The ride will take place on Saturday, September 14, just before the start of AICC’s 2019 Annual Meeting at the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel in Toronto.
Here's our preliminary ride plan:
Friday, September 13
Arrive in Toronto. You have two options after arrival: 1) proceed to the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto where AICC’s Annual Meeting will be held; or 2) book in for one night at the Toronto Airport Marriott, 901 Dixon Road, Toronto, ON M9W 1J5, This second option makes more sense for those flying in because it is 20 minutes closer to our ride start than the Westin. To make reservations at the Toronto Airport Marriott, call 416-674-9400, or go to https://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/yyzot-toronto-airport-marriott-hotel/
Friday Evening: dinner locally
