For a large downtown racing event, they *really* need to work on their promotion more.  I generally make an effort to know about biking events to let BikingToronto readers know about them… but even I wasn’t aware of this until the City released their latest issue of Cyclometer.

I mean yes… cyclists interested in racing probably know about it… but if you want regular people and regular cyclists to come to your event, you have to get the word out.

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 […]
