On Friday, we let you know about the updated Toronto Bike Map, which plots out the city’s bikelanes (using info from the Open Data project) and offers directions between addresses. Yesterday, BlogTO reviewed all 4 Toronto cycling apps, and it’s great information so we’re going to do a quick rundown of them here for you [...]
The Toronto Bike Map App (available on iTunes for free) has been updated. The creator, Mike Lin, has made what I think is the best online bike map (it uses the City’s Open Data information) even better by adding directions. You can punch in start and end points, and the app tells you the best [...]
PLEASE NOTE: this map was done as part of a graphic design exercise and does not claim to be complete or accurate. There’s a cool new map of all of our downtown bikelanes, coined the “BWN” after BikeWay Network. You can really tell that the “network” needs a lot more… and the Jarvis bikelane isn’t [...]
There is an excellent information resource in the latest issue of Cyclometer – a Google Map that shows all the Bikeway Projects started or completed in 2010, as well as photos on their facebook group of the projects: View 2010 Bikeway Network Projects in a larger map Project photos include:
The City of Toronto has posted a survey online to get your feedback about the Toronto Cycling Map: The City of Toronto is conducting this survey to learn about how people are using the Map, what works, and what could be improved. Every year the City publishes and distributes 150,000 Cycling Maps free of charge. [...]
BlogTO is breaking the news that Google Maps Bike Directions is now kinda-sorta working (it’s a “beta” launch – which is used for working out glitches) for Toronto Bike routes: Google bike maps for Toronto launched in beta sometime earlier this afternoon, and I’ve been toying around with the route planner for the last half [...]
Big news for map lovers today! Google Maps has announced that it will be mapping out the bikelanes of 8 Canadian Cities (including Toronto): The online information giant announced Monday that it is introducing a Bike Directions feature to its popular Google Maps site, allowing users to highlight bike-friendly trails and roads across most major [...]
Via Bikeroo in TO: Students and faculty at Ryerson University are very lucky to have one of the most exceptional examples of bicycle parking in all of Toronto. Ryerson’s campus features parking for roughly 1,000 bikes using racks, ring and posts, and an indoor parking facility. Read the full post on Bikeroo in TO.
A few days ago we told you about Rocco Rossi’s Flip-Flop on bikelanes on major streets (he likes the idea now). The Toronto Star has published a map (above) of where these physically-separate bikelanes would be. Rossi’s proposed network includes east-west lanes on Richmond St. between Parliament and Bathurst Sts., and the existing Wellesley Ave.-Harbord [...]
Each year, the City of Toronto releases a comprehensive map of cycling infrastructure and suggested routes. The map indicates bike locker locations, stairs with bicycle groves, bicycle rental locations and clearly indicates every bike lane and multi-use path throughout Toronto. With a stalled Bike Plan, the 2010 edition varies only slightly from its predecessor. One [...]
On Monday, April 12, 2010, BikingToronto asked you to nominate the best bike lanes in Toronto. As a bold pilot project to install separated bike lanes along University Avenue sparks the ire of mayoral candidates, excites downtown bicycle commuters and grabs the headlines, we don’t want our other bike lanes to feel left out. You’ve [...]
I just updated the Maps Page, so I thought I’d do a quick blog post to let everyone know. Here’s what is new: 1) I updated the Bikelanes Map to make it as current as possible. If you know of a bikelane that seems to be missing from the map, please let me know in [...]
Just a quick post to let you know I just updated the Toronto BikeShop Map. I made the BikeShop Map 4 years ago because whenever I was in a part of the city I wasn’t very familiar with, I never knew if I was near a bikeshop. It’s easy enough to google “Toronto Bikeshops” and [...]
Patrick Cain at the Toronto Star loves maps (who doesn’t?). He’s done a couple general commuting maps for the GTA, but has just released one just about Commuter Cyclists, organized by Census Tracts. The map looks pretty much like you’d expect… higher levels of people using bicycles as their primary mode of getting to work [...]
Two years ago I made the first Toronto Bikeshop Map, and I’ve just updated it to be bigger, better, and more useful than the first! View Larger Map A large version of it is on it’s own page on BikingToronto. If you see any mistakes, or know of a shop I missed, please let me [...]
