Cycle advocates take MP Peggy Nash on a bike tour of Parkdale-High Park

Great stuff. We need more politicians taking bike tours of the areas they reprsent – hopefully municipal, provincial and federal politicians all at once!

With the caveat that local cycling issues are not within the federal representative’s jurisdiction, the pair pointed out safety issues and concerns for cyclists along the way.

The pair took Nash on a bike tour of Parkdale–High Park, from Bloor Street West, down Roncesvalles to Queen Street West and up Sorauren Avenue, along the West Toronto Railpath and down Lansdowne Avenue.

“According to the 2006 census data, Ward 14 actually has the second highest proportion of cyclists and pedestrian commuters in the city with 26 per cent who either cycle or walk to work,” Pin said. “There are so many cyclists, yet very little infrastructure.”
