Cycling Events This Week: Feb. 1 – 7

Happy Monday everyone.  We’re starting February off with a bang with all the good stuff happening this week in the world of bikes.  That’s right… it may be February, but things are a-humming in Toronto’s bike world. :)

Here’s info for the next 7 days… but you can always find this info or events far into the future on the always updating Events page.

Monday, Feb. 1st – BikeWay Network Public Consultation Event

Toronto’s network of Bicycle lanes, paths, and onstreet routes continues to grow. Come to this public consultation event to learn more about upcoming projects and to discuss them with City staff.  The objective of this meeting is to get community input on proposed new downtown bikeways that the Transportation Services Cycling Infrastructure and Programs group is working on for 2010.  6-9 PM at Metro Hall (more details)

Tuesday, Feb. 2ndGreat Streets, Healthy Cities

Public meeting and panel discussion about Car Free Sundays and pedestrian issues with expert speakers from New York, San Francisco, Guadalajara and Bogota. The purpose of the meeting is to bring together members of the public to discuss the importance of pedestrian issues and promote the Car Free Sunday movement that is sweeping North America.   6:30-8:30 PM at 15 Devonshire Place (more details)

Tuesday, Feb. 2ndCommunity Bicycle Network Workshop: Bike Repair – Brakes and Gears

The class outline is structured and focused to cover as much as possible in a relatively short amount of time. As a beginner to bike repair, we expect you will learn a lot and come away feeling much more comfortable with the workings of your machine. It is also an ideal refresher for someone who has taken a class in the past, or has some limited, but spotty experience. You will almost certainly learn some new techniques and tricks. 7-10 PM at 761 Queen Street West (more details)

Wednesday, Feb. 3rdCommunity Bicycle Network Workshop – Flat Fix & Intro to Bike Repair

Learn how to fix flats and get acquainted with other basic maintenance issues to keep your bike in tip-top shape!  Participants will remove their own rear wheel and tire and go through a tube repair and installation. 7-10 PM at 761 Queen Street West (more details)

Thursday, Feb. 4th South East End Cyclists Meeting about Leslie Street Reconstruction

The TTC is proposing to put the new light rail car maintenance yard at Leslie and Lakeshore. The rail line is proposed to run up Leslie to Queen which means reconstruction of Leslie. This presents an opportunity to redesign the section adjacent to Loblaws, Price Chopper etc. The idea has been raised at previous public meeting but now that the site has been chosen and there will be an introductory consultation in February.  7-9 PM at South Riverdale Community Health Centre, 955 Queen St. E. (more details)

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 […]
