All of these things apply to even cyclists like me who mainly just commute to work and go on an occasional longer ride for the fun of it. From the 2,500-mile Pacific Crest Bicycle Trail to the colorful RAGBRAI across Iowa — complete […]

ADVOCACY: Ghost bikes move us all

Many of the cycling activists who installed a ghost bike memorial at Spadina south of Dundas last fall didn’t know Carla Warrilow. She was struck and dragged under a truck while cycling on October 16, 2013. It took firefighters 15 minutes to free her, and she died a week later from her injuries. Ghost bikes […]

The fine folks in the Cycle Toronto Ward18 Group have written an open letter to Dan Egan, Manager of Cycling Infrastructure at the City.  New contra-flow bikelanes are planned in the west end, but have seemingly been planned with little thought about the safety of the overall route… specifically crossing Dufferin: Mr. Daniel Egan, Manager […]

Cycle Toronto responds to the Rosie DiManno “Cyclists Should Be Shot” Article

Good on Cycle Toronto.  Read their response to Rosie DiManno’s “Cyclsts Should Be Shot” article (and probably the Star’s Public Editor Response calling it “a joke”) Cycle Toronto believes that road safety is a serious issue and one that must be discussed in a mature and respectful manner. We advocate for safer streets so that […]

Here in Canada, as in the United States, people tend to generally view bicycles primarily for recreation or sport. Thus, when someone asks me how I arrived somewhere and I tell them I rode my […]
