Cycle advocates take MP Peggy Nash on a bike tour of Parkdale-High Park

Great stuff. We need more politicians taking bike tours of the areas they reprsent – hopefully municipal, provincial and federal politicians all at once! With the caveat that local cycling issues are not within the federal representative’s jurisdiction, the pair pointed out safety issues and concerns for cyclists along the way. The pair took Nash […]

Toronto turns management of Bixi over to Portland firm

Bixi Toronto will be administratively under the Toronto Parking Authority, but managed by Portland’s Alta Bicycle Share. Toronto’s plan to save Bixi transfers the bike-sharing program to the Toronto Parking Authority, turns over management to a Portland-based firm  and uses money from Astral Media that was going to be spent on public toilets, the National Post has […]

Lack of Bike Parking on Yonge means bikes hurting newly planted trees

Here’s an idea – provide more bike parking – then people wouldn’t be forced to lock to trees.  Yes, there are bike posts on Yonge south of College, but they are often filled up. The damage wasn’t as bad as the reader said, but a lot of bark on the trunks of some trees had […]

Re-capping the Richmond-Adelaide bikelane public meetings

Great write-up on Dandyhorse about the public meetings that took place on Monday and Tuesday night regarding plans for separated bikelanes on Richmond and Adelaide. Last night, November 18, 2013, approximately 40 people gathered in the Metro Hall rotunda to browse plans and review images for the proposed cycle tracks for Richmond qnd Adelaide streets, […]

EVENT: Nov 18 and Nov 19 – Public Meetings for Protected Bike Lanes on Richmond & Adelaide

Richmond-in-2012

Via Cycle Toronto: The City of Toronto is hosting a two day drop-in event to present preliminary recommended solutions for bikeways on Richmond St and Adelaide St as well as Peter St & Simcoe St. We’re thrilled about the proposed recommendations for Richmond St & Adelaide St but think Peter St & Simcoe St need […]

City Council votes to save Bixi Toronto!

Great bike news came out of the Rob Ford debacle at City Hall yesterday…. not only has Council agreed to sustain Bixi Toronto (possibly running it via the Toronto Parking Authority), but making changes to development bylaws that allow Section 37 funds (the money that condo developers pay the city to exceed height restrictions) to […]

Toronto nearing deal to save Bixi

Good news for Bixi: The city government and Bixi have resurrected a deal to keep the troubled bicycle-sharing service alive — a deal that may involve a $5 million toilets-for-bikes trade.“I’m extremely optimistic,” city cycling manager Daniel Egan said in an interview Tuesday, a day before the meeting at which council will vote on Bixi’s […]

The Bloor East Bikelane: Getting better, but separation needed!

IMG_7423

The Bloor East bikelane has recently been re-painted between Sherbourne and  Parliament with new, slightly wider lanes with a double line and a small “buffer” between the bikelane and the car lanes, as well as some sharrows across the Bloor and Castle Frank intersection. All of this is GREAT, of course.  As a cyclist who used […]

New on Richmond: Stone Canoe Bike Rack

stonecanoe

Awesome video about the new canoe-shaped bikerack on Richmond St.: Stone Canoe commissioned a half-ton piece of artwork geared to give cyclists in the area a beautiful place to park their bicycles. The bike rack, reminiscent of a stone canoe, has been installed on the northwest corner of Walnut Ave. and Richmond St. West. The […]

Cyclists rally for Lansdowne bike lanes after 4 year delay

857933_10153415293475375_868746131_o

Great article by Spacing.  Horrible insight into city processes.  People complaining about the loss of a few car parking spaces delays City Council decisons.  Unbelievable. As night descended on MacGregor Playground on Oct. 29, cyclists clad in ghoulish garb rallied in support of Lansdowne Ave. bike lanes that Toronto council approved in 2009 and 2010, […]

How To Hold Drivers Accountable

cyclist

A fantastic article about two very different philosophies when someone is is killed on a bicycle. The driver who hit Burgess Hu never saw him. She was making a right turn, and the police assume she was looking left. In other words, she wasn’t looking where she was going. As he biked into the driveway […]

Ghost bike left on Spadina for Carla Warrilow

Carla Warrilow

I have no words.  I blame anyone against bikelanes, anywhere.  Anyone who doesn’t think people should be safe no matter what mode of transportation they use is an awful person. The group had gathered at Spadina Ave. and Dundas St. W. to chain a white “ghost bike” to a lamppost as a memorial to 25-year-old […]

Bloor bike lane debate hits the street

Why is this even a “debate”? If some politicians don’t grow some backbone and do things that will make this city more livable, traffic will grind to a halt and we’ll be the next Detroit. Too many cars = a city that doesn’t move. Bikelanes give people a SAFE option that isn’t a car. The […]

EVENT: Tues, Oct. 29 – Phantom Bike Lane Ride for Lansdowne

Bike lanes were approved for Lansdowne in 2009 and 2010, yet years later, they haven’t been installed. Join us on Oct 29 at 6:30pm for a family-friendly costume ride in support of installing the lanes on Lansdowne. Meet at MacGregor Playground (346 Lansdowne at Whytock, south of Bloor). Or join the fun after party at […]

Bloor Street bike lane study clears Public Works Committee

The city of Toronto’s public works committee has approved an environmental assessment to study the feasibility of installing a bike lane along Bloor Street. The study — which if approved would take about a year to complete — will investigate the possibility of putting a bike lane along Bloor from west of Keele Street in the […]
