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.”

OH YEAH! The Viaduct bikelanes get MORE green paint!

Well, I don’t know what’s going on.  This is a level of paying attention to cycling infrastructure on the Bloor Viaduct that, quite frankly, I thought I’d never see (and it pissed me off, often). But now, after the green paint that was laid down late last week in the bikelane, there is now MORE […]

FACEPALM: City closes Hoskin bikelane for PanAm Games

What’s a great idea?  Closing down one of the busiest bikelanes in the city and not providing a detour that’s safe for cyclists (and pedestrians) because of the “short distance of the inconvenience”. A sign erected on June 25 indicates the closure of the Hoskin bike lane for two months during the Pan Am Games. […]

OH YEAH: Easy Bikes – A New Name for Upright Bikes?

Interesting article from Momentum Mag from earlier this month: Did the Wall Street Journal just rename the most accessible, useful, and comfortable of all bicycle styles? Upright bicycles, sometimes referred to by Momentum Mag as city bikes, are hands down the best style of bicycle for daily use. A relaxed frame geometry and swept-back handlebars combine to […]
