Critical Mass Toronto – March 2006

I attended Critical Mass on friday as planned. It rained pretty much from about 3 to 6 pm, so it was great to see about 40 people at Bloor & Spadina at 6:30.

I had the pleasure of meeting Martino during the ride, and he shot a video of the ride, from which I took this screenshot, as we approached Yonge & Bloor from the north (I think I was beside or behind him at this point):


Nice meeting you Tino!

I only stayed with the ride for about 40 minutes (which goes by really fast), during which time I had the experience of riding through the Eaton Centre. I had heard that they’d done it before, but this was the first time I’d been with the Mass when they’d done it.


The route for as long as I rode, before I headed home.

It was only across the mall, from Yonge St. to Trinity Square, but it was fun to see the extreme reactions from shoppers – either shock/anger at seeing a bunch of cyclists biking through, or joy and elation at seeing a bunch of cyclists biking through!

A very fun ride. Let’s all meet up at Bloor & Spadina at 6:30 pm on April 28th. That’s the last day of Earth Week. Actually, April is Earth Month… a perfect time to ride your bike (or transit, or your feet…) more and the car less.

NEWS: A Complete List of Bloor Bike Lane Articles

After 4 decades (!) of Toronto considering the possibility of bike lanes on Bloor, Toronto City Council overwhelmingly voted (38-3) in favour of a 1 year pilot to collect data and evaluate a 2 km stretch of Bloor with bikelanes. I think a lot of people were surprised at just how lopsided the vote was… […]
