E-Bikes not allowed in bike lanes … for now.

Good news… the decision about whether to allow electric scooters (some people call them e-bikes) into Toronto’s bikelanes has been deferred: E-bikes won’t be granted access to Toronto bike lanes just yet, after a recommendation before the City’s public works committee was deferred this afternoon. The report in question makes a distinction between two type […]

E-bike riders seek equality with pedal-pushing counterparts

CycleToronto has a great rundown of what the city’s proposal to allow “e-bikes” in bikelanes will mean for Toronto’s cyclists.  Be sure and click through and send an email to the Public Works Committee about why this is a misguided proposal. This Thursday, members of Public Works & Infrastructure Committee will consider a set of […]

West Toronto Railpath remains unplowed

UPDATE: Councillor Ana Bailao has commented with a link about when the Railpath has been salted and/or ploughed. ——————— For those of you who are in the west end, the Railpath remains unplowed by the city… and not since yesterday’s snowfall, but the one BEFORE it.  Please take care if you’re going to be biking […]

Toronto Fails Again: City to allow E-Bikes in bike lanes

In a move that is entirely consistent with Toronto giving higher priority to those who choose to get around our city with help of a motor, there are reports that City Staff are going to recommend that E-Bikes be allowed in bikelanes. If you’re not moving under your own power, get out of the bikelanes. […]

Are Public Consultations killing Toronto’s Bike Plan?

A good piece from NOW Magazine about the woefully inadequate implementation of Toronto’s Bike Plan. Here’s an idea – put in bikelanes for a 3 month pilot, THEN do consultations to see how everyone likes them (instead of before, when you’re asking people how they THINK they will like them), and then make a decision […]

Toronto’s Bike Plan due to be finished in 158 years

Bike Plan timeline final.img_assist_custom-519x622

Fabulous infographic by Cycle Toronto: The City of Toronto continues to be stuck in neutral when it comes to installing bike lanes. In 2013, the City installed zero kilometres of protected bike lanes and 2.4 kilometres painted bike lanes. At the current rate, it will take 158 years to reach the 2001 Bike Plan’s target […]

More Bikes than Cars using College Street

1012810_763624930319024_802202988_n

This is beautiful stuff. I won’t even get all persnickety about the graph further down the post with a y axis that doesn’t start at zero. I shall keep my inner data geek in check. Cycle Toronto observed this trend this fall, when it counted more bikes than cars on College St. On Thurs Sept 19th, from […]

If you’re already excited about the Sherbourne bikelanes, and are looking forward to Harbord and Richmond and Adelaide and possibly Eglinton getting some separated bikelanes and you wish they’d install some already up on Bloor East, you’ll want to check out this Best Of list from Peopleforbikes.  They list their favourite American protected bikelanes of 2013. […]

Guess Who’s Parking in Toronto Bikelanes Now?

Posted without comment. Ah, who am I kidding?  This needs lots of upset and perplexed comments. via Cycle Toronto Facebook Page.

Are the Sherbourne separated bike lanes working?

Great piece in the Grid about the Sherbourne separated bikelanes.  I’ve heard that there will soon be more bollards separating car traffic. Eric Krumins, a technical writer for an east-end software company, is in a somewhat unique position to comment on the issue. A vehicle owner, he has experienced Sherbourne over the dashboard of his […]

Press Release: Toronto saves and expands bikesharing!

Yay!  The official City of Toronto press release about the saving (and future expansion) of Bixi (or whatever it will be called going forward).  ”We are pleased to announce that the City of Toronto will be keeping the bike share program operating for our customers,” said Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong, chair of the City’s Public works and Infrastructure […]

Bike-sharing is a model of cost-effectiveness both for users and cities. Using bike share to commute is cheaper than public transit for system members. […]

City will take over Bixi bike-share program

Something that was known, but the official announcement is nice.  Long live Bixi (or whatever it’ll be called)!! The city will take over the Bixi bike sharing program, councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong said at Toronto city hall on Wednesday. “Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride,” he told reporters, quoting John F. Kennedy. […]

Green paint being added to Bloor East Bikelanes!

hayley bloor

The above photo makes me so happy.  That green looks fantastic! The City has been busy upgrading the bikelane on Bloor East between Sherbourne and the Bloor Viaduct. The latest thing they’ve done is add some green colouring to the bikelane as it goes through the Bloor and Parliament intersection.  Photo from Hayley Easto above, […]

The vote united councillors of every political stripe, with representation from every geographical corner of the city. The plan is not only to save Bixi, […]
