From the Blogs: Tours, Hacks, Cup Holders and Maps!

A lot of great stuff is being posted in the Blogs, here’s a small taste of it for you:

Duncan is giving us a tour of major Toronto streets, starting with Queen:

Bikeroo has a couple excellent posts up lately:

Lock has started a “History Pics” blog:

It has really cool photos and illustrations of old-timey bikes and bicycle concepts, including steam-powered bikes, and a bike from 1946 that has the first regenerative braking system.

Claire writes excellent posts about bicycle hacks for her bike:

The hacks allow her to transport kids and go shopping.  Her latest hack post is about making a plain handlebar basket stylish and very functional for holding tons of stuff:

I’ve taken this basket with me on numerous trips to the grocery store, and in addition to getting many compliments, it’s proven quite functional. Pop it off, fill it up, pop it back on and go. And the best part? It’s like the TARDIS. It looks small on the outside, but it’s much bigger on the inside. (More Storage Capacity)

My wife loooooves this basket.  I’m going to hook her up with one when she feels up to biking after the baby is born as a “welcome back” gift.  Shhhhh.  No telling. :)

Finally, Michael posts about the Mapping Wiki….

Specifically, the new public posting abilities and design of the Toronto/GTA Bicycle Route Mapping Wiki.  If you’re a Wiki member (same as a BikingToronto member – you can register here), you can add to the wiki blog right on the main page.

Michael is doing some excellent work sharing biking routes around the city.  With the bikelane network still far from complete, it’s good to know some routes around that other people use.
