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! Sexy people stopping at a red light

I shared the above photo on facebook the other day, and it got such a good response, I thought I’d share it here too. Look at all these sexy people on bikes stopped at a red light (at a T intersection, no less). Sooooo hot. See it (and a good discussion) on the City of […]

OH YEAH! Toronto lawyer helps cyclists pedal through ‘unjust’ legal system

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. That’s why Brown, an ardent cycling advocate, has partnered with […]

INFRASTRUCTURE: Help out with the Toronto Parks and Trails Wayfinding Strategy

  Help Toronto’s Parks, Forestry and Recreation department design their wayfinding system: What is Wayfinding? Wayfinding encompasses all the ways in which people understand their surroundings and navigate from place to place. Wayfinding is more than signs – it also includes names, landmarks, conventions, maps and new media. What is the Toronto Parks & Trails […]

NEWS: Car Columnist has trouble remembering bicycle turn signals; bitches about it

A car columnist for the Globe whines about hand signals being too confusing for him.  Because remembering stuff is hard. 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 […]

INFRASTRUCTURE: New Contraflow Bikelane on Florence St.

Having fun watching cyclists discover the freshly installed bike lane on Florence St. In just a couple minutes since I arrived, over a dozen eastbound cyclists who yesterday were going the wrong way on Florence illegally, have adjusted their lane positioning into the centre of the new contra-flow bicycle lane coming around the corner from […]

OH YEAH: Don’t make bicyclists more visible. Make drivers stop hitting them.

About 100 years ago, the auto industry pulled off a neat trick: It stole the public roadways from us. See, in the early days of the motor vehicle, there used to be this quaint idea that the person operating the giant machine should look out for other people. Then came mass production and the Model […]
