**Sorry gents, this ride is for girls only!

Why is is segregated? Too many times I hear women say that they would never ride on Toronto streets because it’s too scary. I want to create a place where all female bike riders can feel comfortable riding on Toronto streets and trails. Whether you are a first time rider, a girl who feels apprehensive about riding in an urban environment or a girl who just loves riding, I want the Cupcake ride to help get more girls out on bikes! If I can even get just one girl who was scared about riding on Toronto streets to come join us and gain enough confidence to ride, then I’ll feel like I’ve made a small difference.

It is essentially a Google Map with an extra layer representing the average concentration of […]

NEWS: Bloor Bike Lanes Pilot Should Be a Council No-Brainer. Here’s Why It’s Not. 

An excellent piece in Torontoist about why a bike lane pilot designed to collect data about benefits/detriments and overwhelming supported by the community is getting static from politicians: There really should have been little to no debate about this 2.5 kilometre bike lane pilot project running along Bloor Street West from Shaw Street to Avenue […]
