The Joseph Lucas Memorial Push

Saturday February 17, 2018

Saturday February 17, 2018 will be the Canadian Vintage Motorcycle Group (CVMG) Old Fort York Section’s Annual Joseph Lucas Memorial Push in downtown Toronto. 

The idea was the brainchild of the late OFY charter member, Harry Roberts – a true motorcycle enthusiast and all around great guy.  His idea was brilliant – as a remedy to the cabin fever suffered by bikers during the coldest and most depressing month of the year why not have a social event and poke some fun at Joseph Lucas? Lucas was the owner or Lucas Electric, the company which supplied parts for the somewhat troublesome electrical systems of British motorcycles, and became known jokingly as “The Prince of Darkness”.

The bike is trailered to the starting pub, and parked outside.  After much merriment, food and libations inside the pub, the group gathers on the sidewalk to push the bike to the next destination. Pushing a broken down motorcycle through the downtown core in the dead of winter with a large entourage certainly attracts curious looks from other city denizens.

 The Joseph Lucas Push starts at the “The Firkin On King”.  Gathering at 7:00pm and move out at 9.00pm for the "Push".

See you at the Firkin on King – 461 King St West. – a smidge West of Spadina Avenue.
