  • Mayoral candidate (and current frontrunner) Rob Ford has released his “transportation plan” (PDF). The contents of the plan can be summed up as follows: Streetcars are bad. TransitCity should not be built because an efficient wide-ranging Light Rail Transit system costs 1/10 as much as an equivalent subway system… but subway promises get votes. Not only should […] Related Photos

    OH YEAH! Steamwhistle expands its network of bike repair stations

    Oh yeah!  BlogTO has picked up the BikingToronto post last week about this.  Steamwhistle deserves lots of toasts.

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 […]
