Review of Jet Fuel Coffee Shop

Wow – and such varied comments too – they either adore the place or despise it. Lately I’ve been partial to Broadview Espresso. It’s on a route I use a lot and they make a mean americano. Still my fav… Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

Why do you wear a helmet, or do you even?

I wear. I had a relative who hit his (helmeted) head in a bike crash. His injuries would have been much worse had he not been wearing it, I think (he flipped over his handlebars, and struck the ground… Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

Review of Jet Fuel Coffee Shop

Why do you wear a helmet, or do you even?

I do. For a few reasons: – First off, I know there are a number of studies that say it isn’t particularly effective and it definitely wouldn’t be for major torso/internal injuries for sure. That said,… Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

Biting the Bike Snob: on Toronto Cyclists

@Singerb I’d say the majority of cyclists don’t blow through stop signs so much as roll through them Idaho-stop style. And if 2.5 hours of observation at Bellevue and Nassau means anything I would say… Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

Biting the Bike Snob: on Toronto Cyclists

None of those people really bother me as much as “bike salmon.” (Side note: ever since I learned this term on Bike Snob I’ve been using it daily, my friends are not impressed) This is especially bothe… Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

Montrose Ave – Could we use more contra-flow bike lanes?

Good news for Parkdale… at the June 3rd Public Works Committee Meeting, they approved a whole bunch of new bikelanes, including a lot of contra-flow lanes… many of which are in the west end: Cont… Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

Montrose Ave – Could we use more contra-flow bike lanes?

Now that I look even closer, there’s one on Knox between Queen Street East and Eastern Ave… I guess they are springing up faster than I thought. Parkdale could use a lot of these lanes. Although, sp… 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 […]
