NEWS: Councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon hit by car while biking

This story is only in the Sun right now, so I’m linking to it bregrudgingly.  The comments are horrible.

Glad to hear Mary-Margaret is okay.  She’s one of the few politicians in Toronto (or anywhere) that give me hope for this city.

A man has been charged with careless driving after Councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon got knocked off her bike and sent to hospital.

The bike-loving councillor was riding south on Woodbine Ave. crossing Gerrard St. on Sunday when she was hit and left lying on the street just before 11 a.m.

“I’m all banged up on my left side but I’m surprised I can walk away – it could have been a lot worse,” McMahon told the Sun on Tuesday.

McMahon – who is running for re-election – said she was being her “classic, cautious, Mary Poppins, cyclist self” when the incident happened.

“The light had just changed and next thing I knew I had a passenger side door right at my handlebar and so I yelled, I screamed and then thump, the back of the car hit me and tossed me off onto Woodbine,” McMahon said. “I was lying there on Woodbine and thankfully no one ran over me.”

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 […]

OH YEAH! How I learned to love cycling my way to work

I’ll be honest, and I hate to admit this, but I used to be that person that perpetually ran five minutes late—to everything. I’d do my best to be timely, but in many circumstances, I just couldn’t seem to make it to my commitments on time. A few years ago my brother became a bicycle […]
