Tomorrow is BikeFriday

Tomorrow is the 11th monthly BikeFriday… we’ve been doing it every last Friday of the month since August 2006… and now it’s starting to pick up.

We’ve got BikePools / GroupCommutes all over the city, and even the City of Mississauga is getting in on the fun!

If you haven’t been to the BikeFriday site lately, check it out. I’ve recently added maps of all the Commutes to the page – like my 8 AM one from Woodbine & Danforth below:

    Bikes a re great but urban congestion pricing and its effectiveness and ramifications have to be considered before rushing in to it.
    For instance, London’s results have been mixed.

    Now NYC Mayor Mike ‘The Nanny’ Bloomberg is all excited about it, while he wasn’t just a couple of years ago.

    We all have to wonder what Bloomberg is really thinking of with this congestion pricing tax scheme. Maybe he mostly just wants a new tax. Just wrap it up in ‘concern for the environment’, and then people can just demonize those who oppose it.

    If he cares so much about traffic jams, congestion and air pollution, why does he let Park Avenue be blocked off? Why doesn’t he do anything about that?

    It’s true, Pershing Square Restaurant blocks Park Avenue going South at 42nd St. for about 12 hours a day/5 months of the year! This Causes Massive Congestion and Air Pollution!

    But apparently it does not bother NYC’s Nanny-in-Chief Mike “Congestion Pricing Tax” Bloomberg?

    It certainly supports his claim that the city is highly congested.
