Here’s what’s on tap for this week:

The Toronto Cycling Advisory Committee is designed to advise City Council and its departments, agencies, boards, and commissions, on the design, development and delivery of bicycle policies, programs and facilities to promote and enhance cycling within the City of Toronto. The goal of the committee is to provide a liveable and environmentally friendly city that is accessible and safe for people of all ages and abilities to get around by bicycle and to ensure the role of cycling in a transportation system appropriately balanced among all road users.

Kingsway Neighbourhood Meeting – Traffic Management Plan

Please attend to see a Presentation from Transportation
Services and Councillor Milczyn on the results and recommendations
resulting from the Kingsway Residents* Traffic Working Group and
Transportation Services traffic studies completed over the past year and
a half.

A phased-in approach for traffic and safety improvements will be
presented (improvements would begin Spring 2008). Feedback/comments and
support from the community, for these recommendations, is being sought.

Recommendations from Transportation Services Staff would then proceed
to Community Council for their approval in the next few months.

Fri Jan 25th – All Day
BikeFriday!

BikeFriday is an initiative to promote (and encourage) bike events happening in Toronto on the last friday of every month, with the aim of turning that day into a de facto “Bike Day” that happens once a month.

Citizens, politicians and businesses in Toronto all want our air to be cleaner, or streets to be less congested, and our kids to be healthier… and a good way to help achieve these goals is to promote the bicycle as a way of making short trips around the city.

More at BikeFriday.

If you know of stuff I’ve missed, let me know. As I add new stuff you’ll find it on the calendar. :)

They’ve also been […]

NEWS: Why not make biking on sidewalks legal in the suburbs?

I tend to agree with the main concept here… that suburban arterials need bike infrastructure badly… but cars go SO fast on those roads, it’s impossible to feel safe even in a bikelane that is just paint. A physical barrier (curb, bollards, etc) is needed, or an cycling addition on the side of sidewalks.  Many […]

OH YEAH! How I learned to love cycling my way to work

I’ll be honest, and I hate to admit this, but I used to be that person that perpetually ran five minutes late—to everything. I’d do my best to be timely, but in many circumstances, I just couldn’t seem to make it to my commitments on time. A few years ago my brother became a bicycle […]
