That’s right! 4 years have gone by since I made the very first post on BikingToronto on Jan. 12, 2006. 4 years! If BikingToronto was a kid, it would be starting kindergarten. What’s happened in 4 years? Why don’t I tell you? (photo from no small wonder on Flickr, via NYC BikeMaps) Hosting: BikingToronto started [...]
Hi everyone, Every winter, I generally take stock of BikingToronto and update the design of the site and figure out what’s working well and what’s working not-so-well. With the success of the forum, I’d like to add more interactivity to the site to make is as useful for Toronto cyclists as possible… but I need [...]
Here at BikingToronto, we’ve decided to add a “How To” section to the site. Lots of sites do this, of course, but we’re going to do it a little differently (because we’re all a little different, haha). Namely, we’re going to let *you* develop the “How To” section. We’re going to do this through the [...]
We are now halfway through September, so I want to remind everyone about the Community Contest we have going on. It’s a draw-type contest, and the more you participate in the BikingToronto Community, the more draw entries you get. It’s that easy.

I’ve just tallied up all the entries for the May Contest: you got an entry if you were or became a member of the BikingToronto Community in May you got an entry every time you posted anything (a forum post, a photo, etc.) in the Community during May.

If you haven’t already noticed it, last week I renovated the “Maps” section of this site, adding a Bikelane Map to the already well-received Bikeshop Map, and making a nice main Maps Page. This is also part of a BikeMonth campaign between MC Abdominal and BikingToronto to raise awareness of Bicycles Crossing Borders – an [...]

Hi everyone, I’ve redesigned BikingToronto for you. The goal of the new design is to let you find information about biking in Toronto quickly and easily. After all, there are over 2000 pages (as of May 2008) of information here. They’re not going to do anyone much good if no one can find them. Beside [...]
