2012 Cupcake Ride Season Opener!!

Just in case you haven’t heard, the first Girls Cupcake Ride of 2012 is this Saturday!

Remember, this ride is for Girls Only.  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 be announcing details very soon, so stay tuned.

Here are Hyedie‘s words to give you the details about the Girls ride this Saturday:

Our first ride will be fairly short (approximately 9km) so that we can ease into the season. Plus we ride at an easy pace (average 15kms/hr).

I’m so excited to start the 3rd season of the Cupcake Ride! Hope you can make it out!

Date: Saturday, April 7
Time: 1pm

NEWS: Nearby bikeshare station may raise your home’s value

Having a bike share station outside your front door might do more than give you a convenient way to ride to work — it might also boost the value of your home. According to a new study from McGill University, residential units in Montreal are worth more if they’re close to a Bixi station, Montreal’s […]

OH YEAH! The Viaduct bikelanes get MORE green paint!

Well, I don’t know what’s going on.  This is a level of paying attention to cycling infrastructure on the Bloor Viaduct that, quite frankly, I thought I’d never see (and it pissed me off, often). But now, after the green paint that was laid down late last week in the bikelane, there is now MORE […]

FACEPALM: City closes Hoskin bikelane for PanAm Games

What’s a great idea?  Closing down one of the busiest bikelanes in the city and not providing a detour that’s safe for cyclists (and pedestrians) because of the “short distance of the inconvenience”. A sign erected on June 25 indicates the closure of the Hoskin bike lane for two months during the Pan Am Games. […]

OH YEAH: Easy Bikes – A New Name for Upright Bikes?

Interesting article from Momentum Mag from earlier this month: Did the Wall Street Journal just rename the most accessible, useful, and comfortable of all bicycle styles? Upright bicycles, sometimes referred to by Momentum Mag as city bikes, are hands down the best style of bicycle for daily use. A relaxed frame geometry and swept-back handlebars combine to […]

OH YEAH! The Bloor Viaduct bikelane gets some green paint

Check this out.  The most dangerous section of the Bloor Viaduct bikelane has changed, with a bit of green paint. I tweeted out a quick photo (above) of it this morning as I was headed to work, but took some more (below) as I rode the paint on the way home today. It’s not perfect, […]
