Announcing Toronto’s Best Bike Lane as Voted By You!

The people have spoken!

We at BikingToronto.com asked you to nominate the best bike lanes in Toronto. Your responses were fantastic and we really learned what makes a bike lane the best according to you.

The best bike lanes go all the way to (and even sometimes right through) intersections. The best lanes are on roads easily integrated into your commute. The best bike lanes take you where you want to go. In the end, we’ve learned that the best bike lanes are moving Toronto!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to nominate a bike lane, share this poll with friends and ultimately vote for Toronto’s Best Bike Lane. And now, without further ado, announcing Toronto’s Best Bike Lane:

The Winner Is Route 35: St. George and Beverly Streets

With an outstanding 47% of total votes there is plenty of support for the bike lane that starts in the north at Dupont Street and runs continuously south, through the University of Toronto, past the AGO and terminates at Queen Street West.

It’s no surprise why you voted for the St. George/Beverly Street bike lane. Take a look at these streets during rush hour and you’ll see one of Toronto’s greatest mixes of people who rides bikes. From business men and women to students and local residents, this bike lane provides the only bike route in and out of the downtown for countless thousands of people.

Once again, Toronto, thank you for nominating and voting for Toronto’s Best Bike Lane.
