The New BikingToronto Design

Hi everyone,

I’ve redesigned BikingToronto for you.

The goal of the new design is to let you find information about biking in Toronto quickly and easily. After all, there are over 2000 pages (as of May 2008) of information here. They’re not going to do anyone much good if no one can find them. :)

Beside the site logo up at the top you have links to parts of the site that will help you find information:

Under that you can see links to the most popular categories of blog posts:

… and a link to the Categories Page.

If you click around a bit, you’ll find that each page has different features for you.

For instance, the News Page has links to all recent news stories, as well as news discussion in the BikingToronto Community, as well as links to the News RSS feed and the News Email Newsletter.

The Photos Page has links to all recent photo posts, as well as links to the BikingToronto Group on Flickr, as well as a new feature – Featured Photographers – with our first two – Gabi and Tino.

Look around lots, and do it often. I’ll be adding stuff to all the pages over the spring and summer. Lots of new stuff is coming too. Lucky you!

As always, I’d love your feedback on the site. You can leave comments on this post below, or shoot me an email at joe@bikingtoronto.com. Let me know what you like, what you don’t like, and what else you think BikingToronto.com should have.

All the best,

VIDEO: A DIY repair shop created by students for students

A great video introduction to U of T’s BikeChain from Global News (except there’s an ad that runs before it): ‘Bikechain’ was created in 2005 as a student project serving the University of Toronto student community. This DIY bicycle repair shop is based out of the St. George campus and is open to everyone on […]


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 […]
