EVENT: Humber Bay Shores Park Trail Improvements and Bicycle Connections

Date: 

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 – 17:3021:00

Humber Bay Shores Park Trail Improvements and Bicycle Connections

The City of Toronto invites you to learn more and give your input on several projects to improve the trails and cycling connections in Humber Bay Shores Park, to and from the Waterfront and along Lake Shore Boulevard West:

1. Humber Bay Shores Park & Trails Improvement
Upgrades are needed to accommodate the increased popularity of this important waterfront park and trail system. We are looking into improvements on and around the trails, as well as possible on-street cycling connections along Marine Parade Drive and Waterfront Drive. Planting and restoration in the garden area immediately south of Jean Augustine Park will also be discussed.

2. Stanley Ave. Contra-flow Bicycle Lane
We are planning installation of a contra-flow bike lane on Stanley Avenue. No negative impacts to parking or traffic operations are anticipated. The contra-flow bike lane will allow bicycles to travel two-ways, but remain one-way for motor vehicles. This project has been approved by Council and is planned for installation this year.

3. Waterfront Trail Connection on Lake Shore Blvd. W.
We are investigating potential cycling improvements along Lake Shore Boulevard West to close a gap in the Waterfront Trail between Norris Crescent and First Street.

Both Humber Bay Shores Park and Lake Shore Boulevard West projects are at early stages. No design decisions have been made and additional public consultations will take place in the near future.

While there are a range of important subjects related to the park and waterfront that could be discussed, we will be focusing on trails for this consultation.

OH YEAH: Downtown Vancouver businesses’ attitudes towards bike lanes have changed in the last 5 years

“We want downtown to be accessible by all modes of transportation and I think if we say, ‘Well, we’re not interested in separated bike lanes because of this and that, we’re going to basically exclude ourselves from a growing market of people that commute to work by bike as well as people that are living […]

OH YEAH: Prince Edward Viaduct may keep those Jersey Barriers for ALL of Bike Month!

Big ups to Councillor Paula Fletcher, who has requested that those awesome jersey barriers that have separated the eastbound viaduct bikelanes from car traffic (above) during a period of construction STAY for all of Bike Month, so city staff can study the impact of the jersey barriers from now until June 25th. Construction work related […]

REVIEW: Bike to Work Day 2015 

What began in Toronto as Bike to Work Day  in 1989 has evolved to become one of the largest events of its kind in Canada and is now celebrated across the city for a full month with hundreds of community-driven events. Today, May 25, at Bike to Work Day, bike-friendly politicians (including an appearance by […]

OH YEAH: The Origin Story of Sunnyside Bike Park – An Advocacy Success Story

In early 2011, the High Park BMX jumps were removed as they were on the Seneca Wolf Clan’s Serpent Mounds in the south east corner of the park. A few members of the Toronto Off-Road Bicycle Association (TORBA) approached the new Ward 13 Councillor, Sarah Doucette to ask what the City was going to do […]

TRAVEL Log Toronto Cycling 20140714

NEWS: Should cyclists be allowed to ride through stop signs?

Obviously, yes.  Just like drivers are.  Spend any time at a stop sign and watch how many cars do “rolling stops” if there ar no other moving vehicles near the intersection.  Spoiler alert: almost every driver does rolling stops, just like cyclists do. In fact, when I learned to drive in Newmarket, a stop sign […]

SHOP: Brand new bike shop a shrine for serious cyclists

Well, the headline is a little stupid… it should read “…shrine for roadie cyclists”, as “serious” doesn’t only apply to those willing to drop thousands of dollars on a bike. It applies equally to the tens (hundreds?) of thousands of Torontonians who are serious about using their bike to get around the city – to […]

OH YEAH: Rolling Youth into Toronto’s Bicycle Renaissance

With countless community events being hosted from May 25th to June 25th, the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area is anticipating Bike Month 2015. Municipalities and community groups alike are hosting the A to Z in bike events, from food incentivized group rides to bike repair crash courses. Although cycling mode shares are still relatively low […]

OH YEAH! Steamwhistle expands its network of bike repair stations

Oh yeah!  BlogTO has picked up the BikingToronto post last week about this.  Steamwhistle deserves lots of toasts. As Biking Toronto reports, over the last year or so the beer company has installed similar stations at the Brick Works, the Duke of York pub, and most recently in front of Bike Sauce. They’ve also been […]

NEWS: Why not make biking on sidewalks legal in the suburbs?

I tend to agree with the main concept here… that suburban arterials need bike infrastructure badly… but cars go SO fast on those roads, it’s impossible to feel safe even in a bikelane that is just paint. A physical barrier (curb, bollards, etc) is needed, or an cycling addition on the side of sidewalks.  Many […]
