Feminist cycling collective les Dérailleuses launch the second edition of their self-published series Londonderry at l’Euguélionne, featuring texts in three languages on the theme of cyclo-touring across the globe and other bike-friendly words and illustrations. The launch will feature performances and limited edition poster prints as well as copies of the book. 1426 Beaudry, 5:30–8 p.m., free

Get ready for Fringe Fest with tonight’s Fringe-for-All, the annual festival preview where you can see short teasers of dozens of upcoming Fringe shows by local troupes, from theatre and musicals to comedy and dance. Café Campus (57 Prince-Arthur E.), 7 p.m., free
