Send an email to the city anyway

URGENT Call for Action: Bike Lanes on John Street! Send the City an email before Thursday, July 1

Want more bike lanes in the downtown core? Wish the St George/Beverly Lane connected to a safe route for travels further south than Queen? Then send the city an email TODAY (or at least before Thursday)!!!

Here is some background info on the issue. For more information, see the full blog post on the Mez Dispenser.

“The longest uninterrupted north-south bike lane in central Toronto is ‘Route 35‘, which travels along Beverly, St George & Poplar Plains all the way from St Clair down to Queen Street.  At Queen it comes to a dead-end, feeding into a black hole of car-priority streets with no bike infrastructure anywhere nearby.  Ten years ago, City Council approved the Toronto Bike Plan, which includes north-south bike lanes on Spadina & Peter, and physically separated bike lanes on Richmond & Adelaide.  Ten years later, including seven years under Mayor Miller, we still have no bike lanes in that area. Now, to make things worse, the City is planning to re-design John Street and it looks like bike safety is not part of the equation”

More Consideration For Cyclists in the Works

City  council is evaluating high traffic intersections  for the University of  Toronto  Area, and Yorkville.  These are “Bike Boxes”. These boxes aren’t so complicated just that an area is made available for better transition for motorist and cyclist from traffic light intersections. This also means the motorist won’t be allowed to make a right on the red light. No results yet but if approved some changes in Major Intersections along Spadina, College,  Harbord, St. George, Beverley and a new “Scramble” intersection at Bloor/Bay. Looking at this setup seems to make Spadina Rd., College St. and Harbord St. arterial for motorists and cyclists.

M.E.C. Awards $$$ to Bike Sauce

Some News: MEC has awarded us a Grant! As part of what we do is to encourage a “Green Alternative” and “Low Footprint” method of transportation is how we are lucky enough to get M.E.C.’s support.
This grant will assist in keeping this project open, stocked  and ready for all that want to stop by and help themselves to BikeSauce. We are easily finding ways to divvy that up. For Instance bringing the shop into the 90′s.  Yay Internet! For the future check to see if we get some WIFI to share.

First off its great to help out at Bike Sauce and now to be a part of the new location and people there. So out of an excellent opportunity I am allowed to be part of it by being a Bike “Saucier”and its Blogger. So see you around the shop and here on BikingTO.

Currently out of the city for this week but still now fixing bikes (the cottage beater developed a flat.) I am missing out on a lot this past week with the Movie Night that passed on Thurs night. The upcoming Weekend hours are still 1-5ish 6ish and maybe  The Q will be made for roasting favourite protein and vegetables.
