Setting the Agenda 2010
In the weeks since the Mayor announced that he would not be running for re-election, there has been ample speculation about potential Mayoral candidates. Missing from the speculation on the “who,” however, has been the “what.” We need a thorough and thoughtful discussion of the challenges that face Toronto in the next term of Council and the policy agenda and vision for our city. It is time to set the agenda for 2010.

Students on Seven (SOS) and TorontotheBetter present:

Pedal Power…From bicycle-mad Paris to rush-hour New York and the back alleys of Toronto, take a ride through the changing world of bike culture.

Join co-director Chris Sumpton and Taodgh Burns from Toronto’s Community Bicycle Network for a lively discussion after the screening to see what’s happening, figure out what needs to be done and how to do it.

TBN’s Wednesday Wheelie Ride
The nature of the Wednesday day rides known as the “Wednesday Wheelies” might be the best-kept secret in the TBN. Wednesday Wheelies are social, tourist-level rides that cover routes similar to the popular Country Cruises, but which have the glorious advantage of roads, often busy with traffic on a Sunday, being nearly deserted mid-week.

Toronto Cyclists Union “Cinq à Sept”
This monthly event is intended to provide a space where bike union board, executive, management team, ward captains, volunteers, and members can come together and converse over a refreshing beverage. This event is not formal and is not a meeting. Rather, it is a space where the union can meet for the sake of meeting.

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 […]
