BMW – White Cruiser

My white BMW cruiser was stolen from my front porch this morning. It is a very distinctive bike with BMW insignias on the frame and on the handlebar joint. It had black pannier bags across the back wh… Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

Councillor Michael Walker to propose a bicycle licensing scheme in Toronto

I’m in Walker’s ward, for my sins. Yeah, he’s batsh*t crazy. I would not personally ride around the block without my helmet, but I’m not gonna push that on grown-ups. … Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

Councillor Michael Walker to propose a bicycle licensing scheme in Toronto

Yeah, there are rules to follow while operating your feet on a sidewalk too… how about parental licenses? Not wearing a helmet is my personal choice. I generally ride my bike conservatively and ride… Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

Toronto Star: Field guide to Toronto cyclists

I’m pretty close to the winter beater, but then again appearances are a lot more homogeneous in the winter! None of the summer breeds fit me. If I had to describe myself: Commuter (Female) Call: Bwah!… Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

Toronto Star: Field guide to Toronto cyclists

I guess I’m a mix between the shopper girl (both in appearance & maximum use of my bike!) and the commuter (esp for the call “is your signal broken?”)… with a little of the behavior of the earth… Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

Thanks for this Annie… you raise good points. I guess there’s also a difference in being “pro-bike” and being for bikelanes. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Carrot likes car parking, as I’m sure it b… Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

Riding the Rails

I too love bikelanes on regular roads… but you are right… having them just for bikes is nice and completely stress-free. The Beltline is like this, except for multiple road crossings. … Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

Councillor Michael Walker to propose a bicycle licensing scheme in Toronto

I seem to be confusing registration with licensing – probably because I get pet licenses which should really be called registrations. I don’t support licensing for bikes, I don’t object (strongly) to … Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

OH YEAH! Steamwhistle expands its network of bike repair stations

Oh yeah!  BlogTO has picked up the BikingToronto post last week about this.  Steamwhistle deserves lots of toasts. As Biking Toronto reports, over the last year or so the beer company has installed similar stations at the Brick Works, the Duke of York pub, and most recently in front of Bike Sauce. They’ve also been […]

NEWS: Why not make biking on sidewalks legal in the suburbs?

I tend to agree with the main concept here… that suburban arterials need bike infrastructure badly… but cars go SO fast on those roads, it’s impossible to feel safe even in a bikelane that is just paint. A physical barrier (curb, bollards, etc) is needed, or an cycling addition on the side of sidewalks.  Many […]

OH YEAH! How I learned to love cycling my way to work

I’ll be honest, and I hate to admit this, but I used to be that person that perpetually ran five minutes late—to everything. I’d do my best to be timely, but in many circumstances, I just couldn’t seem to make it to my commitments on time. A few years ago my brother became a bicycle […]
