About BikingToronto

BikingToronto is:
– the best place for Toronto cycling information
– a positive outlook on all cycling-related events and news in Toronto
– over 4000 blog posts about cycling news, events, photos and more!

BikingToronto
is not your typical Toronto cycling advocacy site. Many websites which advocate for more cycling facilites and funding in Toronto do so with an often negative slant. Not so with BikingToronto.

BikingToronto believes that for true change to happen (ie. getting more people on bikes), the positive events and initiatives must be celebrated. It’s true that a negative spin could be put on everything that happens in Toronto regarding cycling, but that doesn’t help anyone.

If things happen which aren’t perfect, it’s an opportunity for improvement, rather than an opportunity to whine and complain.
