Rogers Road Bike Lane Grand Opening

City of Toronto Cycling staff are doing great things in 2008 – a great example is this party for the “official” opening of the Rogers Road Bike Lane:


The Rogers bike lane has been installed from Oakwood Avenue to Old Weston Road. Come join the City’s cycling staff celebrate this new bike lane on Thursday July 3rd from 8 to 10 a.m. at Boon Avenue & Rogers Road. There will be free coffee, juice and treats! ZM Cycle & Fitness will also provide free bike repairs at the event.

The installation of the Rogers bike lane brings the total length of bike lanes in Toronto at 78.6 kilometers. The Bike Plan call for the installation of nearly 500 kilometers of bike lanes by 2012 – and this new bike lane brings us one step closer to achieving our goal.

In the event of heavy rain or thunderstorms, please join us on our rain date on Wednesday July 9th.

I hope they keep doing this for bike lanes as they are installed…

If you have questions about this event, contact Alex Bowron with the City of Toronto at (416) 338-5091 or bugs@toronto.ca

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 […]
