The Bicycle Ball

To celebrate EnviroCentre’s 20th anniversary we organized a Bicycle Ball – a fast-paced evening event to shine a light on the benefits of sustainable lifestyles in a new and exciting way.

This inaugural edition took place on September 27th, 2019, at the Horticulture Building here in Ottawa. Take a look at some pictures from the event!
