Critical Mass Toronto – July Photos

Here’s some pretty photos from last friday’s Critical Mass Ride. There were a lot of people there, but I’m not sure how many… anyone count them?


On Bloor at St. George… you can see the Bata Shoe Museum there in the background. I was near the back of the Mass for most of the ride (I’m just a slowpoke, I guess…).


On Bloor at Queen’s Park Crescent. I’m quite proud that I took a couple okay photos over my shoulder AND that people felt compelled to look at my camera. :) On the left n the background you can see a bit of the new addition to Royal Ontario Museum … which you can see in a better shot too.


On Yonge at Gerrard, heading south… going through a red light (which is just practical when biking with hundreds of other people. :)


Here’s a photo of Tanya (courtesy of TorontoCranks.com), with me behind her (in blue) laughing with a guy, who, when asked why we were riding in a group by a pedestrian, answered not with “to promote cycling as a viable transportation alternative” but with “we’re against test tube babies“. I thought this was very hilarious.

You can see all 22 photos I took over here.

MAPS! Helping cyclists avoid smoggy routes in Toronto and Montreal

  Amazing tool!  Played with it a long time.  Very telling that when you turn off the street map, high pollution levels still indicate where roads (and especially highways and the airport) are, and where the ravines (without highways) are. It is essentially a Google Map with an extra layer representing the average concentration of […]

NEWS: Bloor Bike Lanes Pilot Should Be a Council No-Brainer. Here’s Why It’s Not. 

An excellent piece in Torontoist about why a bike lane pilot designed to collect data about benefits/detriments and overwhelming supported by the community is getting static from politicians: There really should have been little to no debate about this 2.5 kilometre bike lane pilot project running along Bloor Street West from Shaw Street to Avenue […]
