On Friday morning I propped my phone up on the rear rack of my bike and captured 16 minutes of morning bike commuters streaming westbound over the Prince Edward Viaduct. If you or someone you know traversed the Viaduct between 8:43 and 8:59 AM on Friday, you’re in this video.
The Viaduct is one of my favourite places to bike watch… it’s one of the few crossings of the Don Valley, and the northernmost crossing into downtown – so the bikelanes there are not only filled with downtown workers who live anywhere along the Danforth, but people in the southern part of East York, and those who live in Leaside and come across the Leaside Bridge before heading down Broadview to the Viaduct.
I’ve sped up the video twice, so you see 16 minutes of cyclists in just 4 minutes, and while I put a historical looking filter on the video, it was indeed very sunny that morning, and the bikelanes were awash in golden sunlight.
