The more things change…

Also, another quote that seems appropriate to share given the current push for cyclist licensing in Toronto: “It should be possible for the police to prevent novices learning to ride in the public tho… Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

The more things change…

I came across a link to an article in an 1896 edition of The Lancet on “The Dangers of Cycling”. It’s an interesting read. While there are some things that have changed (I only rarely have to share th… Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

Running Reds . . .

Great question and I don’t have an answer either. I saw that in Quebec City some even when the light was green. Whatever the answer is, I think the logic might be similar to what the folks who veer in… Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

Awesome and insane bike recovery story from Spacing Toronto: Stolen Bike Recovered through covert ‘Bike Strike’ Heather’s story is not one many Toronto cyclists may be used to hearing. Although it be… Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

Running Reds . . .

Running Reds . . .

I’m curious for some feedback on something I’ve noticed Toronto cyclists doing. Not sure if it’s unique to the city, but I moved here two years ago and haven’t seen it elsewhere, so I have to ask: Run… Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

How harmful is it to Exercise Outside on a Polluted Day?

From the sounds of it… the cyclist was going north and at the tail end of a green light (ie., the light had just turned red, and the car started making a left turn, going from westbound on Front to … Click to read more in the Forum >>>…
