OH YEAH! Adding a bike to your urban mobility tool kit

Great piece from Yvonne Bambrick in Spacing.  Yvonne also has an Urban Cycling book coming out in the new year.  You can pre-order it. Unlike some of the best-established cycling cities, North American transportation cycling culture is still growing and maturing — every year we have more eager, and often nervous, new riders with varying […]

The collision happened about 8 p.m. Monday, about two kilometres west of the city, on Highway 1A. Mounties say an eastbound SUV travelling in the same direction hit […]

faded lane

For whatever reason, these streets have been designed in such a way that people are regularly driving into the bike lane with their cars. To be clear, that doesn’t mean people are […]

NEWS: Toronto’s new bike lanes are being misused

Yet another article about the total inadequacy of bikelanes without physical separation (curbs, planters, flex-bollards). It sucks to be a cyclist in this town. Less than a month after reporting the news that the Simcoe bike lanes were being used as a parking space by motorists, the freshly pained bike lanes are once again in […]
