Tuesday, April 15, 2014 – 19:0021:00

In partnership with the Lakeshore Planning Council and Cycle Toronto, the Etobicoke- South Cycling Committee will be holding a meeting on April 15 from 7 to 9 PM. We will meet at Among Friends. It is at 2970 Lake Shore W, Etobicoke, ON M8V 1J7. This is at Lakeshore and Islington

Our agenda is as follows:

1. TDSB declares Bike to School Day May 26

Get your bikes tuned up and ready for spring! Biking to school has many health benefits for students. In keeping with the spirit of the TDSB’s Active Transportation Charter, and at my initiative, the TDSB has declared that the City of Toronto’s Bike to Work Day will now also be the TDSB’s Bike to School Day. This year the date falls on Monday, May 26th, 2014. Hope to see you out! How can we help out with this?

2. The next meeting for the Doable Neighbourhood Project is May 15. Have we filled out the assessments? What needs to be done before that meeting?

3. There is a community meeting on bicycle lanes and cycling in the Humber Bay Shores area on April 16. What questions do we wish to ask? Who is attending?

4. At our last meeting, we discussed Humber College plans for a cycling event as part of their August orientation week. What progeress has been made? How can we help them?

.

Our meeting is open to anyone interested in issues in Wards 5 or 6 or with an interest in bicycling issues.

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, […]

OH YEAH! Flower-filled Planter Boxes on Simcoe’s Separated Cycle Tracks!

    So wonderful.  Can we get these on all of Toronto’s bikelanes please? New planter boxes on Simcoe increase safety for cyclists and beautify the street. Kudos to Transportation Services for moving this forward. Source: Cycle Toronto Facebook Page
