More Details about the OCAD Gateway BikeStand Winners

OCAD has put out a news release about the announcement of the winning design at their Gateway BikeStand Design competition last friday, along with photos:

Rosete and Mach’s first-place design will now proceed to development and implementation, with their bike stands built as part of the new building designed by architect Robert Chang. Justin Rosete and Erica Mach with Mayor Miller

“I’m incredibly proud of what these students have done and that this work will stand as a testament to the tremendous wealth of talent we have in Toronto,” said Mayor Miller. “Their designs are not only representative of the general excellence coming out of OCAD, they will make a real and positive difference in beautifying the city’s public realm.”

“Part of our university’s design philosophy is to create objects, environments and experiences that nurture community, satisfy needs and empower individuals — and I think the imaginative and innovative designs produced by our students embody all of these qualities,” said OCAD President Sara Diamond. “Through community-based competitions like the Gateway Bike Stand Challenge, OCAD students are contributing to the enhancement of Toronto’s streetscape.”

For cyclists injured in an accident, navigating the legal system can be as hard as biking through downtown Toronto during rush hour, says lawyer Patrick Brown. “The system can be very complicated and a lot of cyclists don’t know what entitlements they have,” he said.

He also blames car-bike collisions on drivers not understanding bike hand signals.  That’s totally the reason there are collisions.  It’s not drivers being inattentive or the self-righteous belief that being in a car means they should […]
