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 […]

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 […]

HOW TO: Yvonne Bambrick tackles the commuting fear factor

Is it safe to cycle in a large city like Toronto? In her new book The Urban Cycling Survival Guide, Toronto cycling advocate Yvonne Bambrick attempts to address the “fear factor” that riders new to bike commuting might feel as they roll through our crowded streets.  In a conversation with CBC Radio’s Metro Morning, Bambrick said it […]
