OH YEAH! Welcoming a New Supporter: VeloLifestyle

BikingToronto would like to welcome our newest supporter: Velolifestyle, a *Canadian* online source for lifestyle cycling.  You’ll be seeing their ad over in the sidebar of the site for the next 12 months, as well as in our email newsletter.

A quick check of their website will likely make you smile, as it did me. In addition to dutch bikes, cargo bikes and regular bike accessories like bags and panniers, they also have some really fun bike accessories like pizza cutters, spoke reflectors, wallets made from bike tubes and coffee holders.  I’ve already got a huge “Want/Need” list started. Haha.

I’m also VERY excited about their physical location, their Allo Velo bike boutique and café in Montreal.  Bikes + Coffee? Oh yeah.  They even rent Triobikes for families visiting Montreal.  Sign me UP!  I’m all over that!  Planning a trip now.

MAPS! Helping cyclists avoid smoggy routes in Toronto and Montreal

  Amazing tool!  Played with it a long time.  Very telling that when you turn off the street map, high pollution levels still indicate where roads (and especially highways and the airport) are, and where the ravines (without highways) are. It is essentially a Google Map with an extra layer representing the average concentration of […]

NEWS: Bloor Bike Lanes Pilot Should Be a Council No-Brainer. Here’s Why It’s Not. 

An excellent piece in Torontoist about why a bike lane pilot designed to collect data about benefits/detriments and overwhelming supported by the community is getting static from politicians: There really should have been little to no debate about this 2.5 kilometre bike lane pilot project running along Bloor Street West from Shaw Street to Avenue […]
