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.

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

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 […]
