On May 25 2009 Rob Ford made a speech about Bike Lanes. The spectacle media and knee jerk liberals reacted to the use of the word “ass” and laughed at the idea of widening sidewalks and separating Bikes from the highway like arterial roads in the “519″, wards in the City of Toronto – the […]

  • Winter is here, but that’s no reason to stay inside (although hot chocolate and roaring fires are definitely a good time). Whether you’re thinking about biking to work this winter, or considering some fun recreational rides to feel like a “True Canadian“, battling the elements, we’ve put together some Winter Biking photos from the past […] Related posts: Mar. 3: Photos of the Week Video: Extreme Winter Biking Slush Puppies: How to Enjoy Biking in the Winter

  • This map has a companion article over at the blog, that expands on the terms “Enabled” & “Alternative” bike route; routes in the old city, on the “graph paper grid”, that avoid dangerous intersections and corridors – like this one that avoids the intersection of Coxwell Ave. and Lower Gerrard Street – and the super […]

  • Older areas of the cities road grid are laid out like graph paper – as such it is easy to find alternative, convenient, efficient and safe routes for commute Bikeways. If these routes are “enabled” for bikes, and to deter car traffic, they will become the cyclists preferred route – in my humble opinion. Tonight […]

  • The snow you see on the ground this morning is the remnants of a monster storm that cycloned over Minneapolis – St Paul over the weekend. A strong southerly flow up the Appalachian Mountains and a weak system over Hudson Bay whisked the storm away before it could drop much snow here in Toronto. Images […]

  • This guy is great. He produced his own video from footage he shot while working as a bike courier with a helmet-cam. At the bottom of one of the videos is a WARNING LABEL: “Please don’t try this at home, I have years of experience which keeps me safe.” In the early 2000′s I had […]

    NEWS: Why not make biking on sidewalks legal in the suburbs?

    I tend to agree with the main concept here… that suburban arterials need bike infrastructure badly… but cars go SO fast on those roads, it’s impossible to feel safe even in a bikelane that is just paint.

    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 […]
