The Toronto Cyclists Union pondered the idea of having a bike gathering around the car to let the world know that Toronto loves cycling:
Yvonne Bambrick of the Toronto Cyclists Union says she’s on the lookout for a Google car to put a call out to her membership at a moment’s notice.
“We’d like to get cyclists out en masse and surround the car, to let people know that Toronto rides bikes,” she says. “It’s about messaging. Street View is a great communications tool if you plan for it.” [from the Star]
Update: The Star seems to have exaggerated Yvonne’s interest in the “Googlemobile” … it would be cool to have some cyclists near the car as it takes photos of our streets.Wed, Feb 24: Come to the Toronto Bike Awards!
