Comment: BikeMonth on BikingToronto

This is money. This took a lot of work. Now, you’re not going to want to hear this, but most of the Apple/Google Calendar using hedonists need this data in an iCal format. Then we can just drop it into our calendars like advent chocolates. Is there any way that could happen, maybe not this year, but next?

Comment: Headlines: Fixing Worn Out BikeLane Paint

Yes, I believe it’s only legal for taxi’s and delivery vehicles to stop in bikelanes in Toronto – and then only for the purposes of pick-ups or drop-offs. They aren’t allowed to sit there and do nothing. Private autos are never allowed to.

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 […]
