City Council Votes on Jarvis Bikelanes on Monday, May 25th

From the Toronto Cyclists Union:

Hello fellow cyclists!

Your presence is strongly recommended, and politely requested, for the Jarvis St. bike lane vote at,

Council Chambers, City Hall
Monday May 25th – 9:30am
HELMETS ON!!

(we need to stand out since the pro-car folks are wearing yellow t-shirts…)

**No signs please. Respectful silence. Positive energy & attitude.

Here we go folks – our chance to show City Council that Torontonians want bike lanes is happening first thing Monday morning!!

The Jarvis St. redesign, including full bike lanes, is scheduled as the first order of business at this precedent setting city council meeting.

Right after the Bike Month kick-off Pancake Breakfast in Nathan Phillips Square, we ask that you proceed to Council Chambers at 9:30am. (What a way to kick off bike month eh…)

We want to have as many of our city’s cyclists bring in and amplify the positive energy of the start of Bike Month when the topic is being discussed, because I can guarantee that there will be many yellow T-shirted car drivers there to oppose these bike lanes and any redesign that might slow ‘their’ inner city highway to Rosedale, Moore Park, etc…!!

Hope to see you there with your helmet on ;) Strength in Numbers!!
