Happy Friday! Today is a cold one! The good news is that April starts next week! :)
Here’s all the stuff you’ve seen (or missed) in the past week!
(if you don’t already get this in your email, but would like to – you can sign up here)
In The News:
- Mississauga is planning to install 600 km of new bikelanes and paths over the next 20 years
- Mayoral candidate Rocco Rossi wants to relegate bikelanes to sidestreets, but insists he’s not right-wing politically.
- The City of Toronto is looking for participants for a College Street Cycling Survey.
New on the Main Blog:
The City of Toronto is working with the Toronto Coalition for Active Transportation (TCAT) and the Clean Air Partnership (CAP) to evaluate cycling conditions on College Street before and after the installation of a new bicycle pavement marking application – and we need your help.
I updated the Bikelanes Map to make it as current as possible. I added a link to Michael Holloway’s excellent and popular Toronto/GTA Bicycle Route Mapping Wiki blog – which compiles user-submitted cycling routes around Toronto. I added a “RideTheCity” page with an embedded version of RideTheCity’s Toronto page. The RideTheCity mapping function isn’t the best (some routes are a little wonky), but it’s pretty good and there are plans for improvement)
