BikingToronto.com Asks: What is Toronto’s Best Bike Lane?

/oveSpring is in the air and countless Toronto cyclists (possibly a million) are back on the city streets. They’re cycling to work and school and the grocery store and the park and the lake and… well, the list goes on and on.

Along their daily travels, cyclists will encounter Toronto’s growing network of bike lanes. Sure, the system of bike lanes currently lining several of our streets aren’t perfect, but we’re tired of hearing complaints. Let’s hear where we’ve gotten it right, let’s hear about the bike lanes that make a difference in your cycling and daily life.

What makes a bike lane the best?

Is there a bike lane that connects you to a loved one’s house? Is there a bike lane that becomes the highlight of your daily commute? Is there a bike lane that has helped you discover something new and exciting about Toronto? Is there a bike lane you use for Toronto’s best shopping? Is there a bike lane that makes you feel more confident and safe?

Toronto’s Best Bike Lane is going to be decided solely on your experiences. There are no right and wrong answers here, just the stories and reasons why a particular bike lane is the best no matter how big or small.

We’re asking for your submissions over the next month and will conclude our search by posting your photos and stories just in time for Toronto Bike Month.
