IMG_4197

The removal of the Jarvis bike lanes in November 2012 was costly and disregarded the wishes of the residents and cyclists who protested the removal and demanded public consultation. The removal of these lanes damaged Toronto’s reputation on a national and international scale at a time when other cities were forging ahead with more bike […]

Great post in Dandyhorse about the culture of parking in Toronto. You can learn a lot about a city’s priorities when you sit in a parked car. I recently spent a work day doing just that—first on a downtown street, then a pleasant residential road, and finally, two store parking lots. I wanted to figure […]

ELSEWHERE: Pittsburgh’s mayor wants to ‘Copenhagenize’ his city.

  As much as we wish that certain things which obviously make sense would happen all on their own, things don’t always work that way, and it’s often the case that leadership is the necessary ingredient for things to get going. This is on display in Pittsburgh, a city that has recently elected Bill Peduto […]

NEWS: #MinimumGrid – A model for protected-lane politics

Very cool.  Cycle Toronto‘s #MinimumGrid campaign makes it onto the People for Bikes blog. Almost all urban politicians will tell you they think bikes are great. But only some actually do anything to make biking more popular.

OH YEAH: Welcoming a New Advertiser – Village

250x250-Village

BikingToronto would like to welcome our newest advertiser: Village.

I really like the idea and […]
