How to get urban dwellers cycling: Make it normal [Globe & Mail] I think the main thing is treating cycling as nothing special. If you have Option A and Option B, and Option A takes you 15 minutes, it’s comfortable, Option B takes you 25 minutes, it feels dangerous, most people will choose Option A. … [...]
As I mentioned when I posted photos from the Sweet Ride: Cupcake Edition on Sunday, I also took about 100 short videos during the ride, and have been editing them on my phone. I’m finally done, and was able to take 11 minutes of video down to 3.5, as well as pairing it with a [...]
Yesterday, we had our first Sweet Ride (co-ed food based group ride planned with Hyedie of the Cupcake Ride) of 2012. It had a cupcake theme, and we started up at Bathurst and Eglinton at Flour Studio and went all the way to Bobbette & Belle in Leslieville almost completely car-free via the Beltline, Moore Park [...]

If you’re a guy (or a girl who can’t make it this Saturday) Hyedie and I are planning a Co-ed Sweet Ride for Sunday, April 22nd. There will be cupcakes (and lots of other fine baked goods) available. We should [...]
It’s April, spring is (almost) here, but I want to take a blog post to highlight a very good series of posts done by Hyedie over at the Cupcake Ride blog… the Winter Rider interview series with Cupcake Riders who ride all year long. She chatted with them about why they love riding and what [...]
I started making some changes to BikingToronto yesterday. These are changes I’ve been thinking about for a while. You’ll notice the following design changes: 1. New title logo. Big. Bright. Simple.
