NEWS: DAS5 – Darcy Allan Sheppard remembered

Ask most Ontarians about the case and they will remember it as the story about the crazed messenger who was justifiably killed after he “jumped on” a car and “attacked” Bryant and his wife who were out celebrating their anniversary. This was the story that emerged from special prosecutor Richard Peck’s 68-page presentation to Judge […]

OH YEAH! Bill Murray biking around Toronto!


The other day I alluded to celebrities biking to film premieres at TIFF and parking at Cycle Toronto’s Bike Valet (don’t worry, non-celebs can use it too. It’s free), and today saw Bill Murray biking around Toronto on Bill Murray Day! While walking to work this morning, Felicia Guthrie spied the legendary actor and comedian biking […]

NEWS: Toronto cyclist killed near Brandon, MB.

Oh, I hate reading these kinds of news stories. A 24-year-old Toronto man was killed after being hit by an SUV while riding his bike near Brandon. The collision happened about 8 p.m. Monday, about two kilometres west of the city, on Highway 1A. Mounties say an eastbound SUV travelling in the same direction hit […]

NEWS: Toronto’s new bike lanes are being misused

Yet another article about the total inadequacy of bikelanes without physical separation (curbs, planters, flex-bollards). It sucks to be a cyclist in this town. Less than a month after reporting the news that the Simcoe bike lanes were being used as a parking space by motorists, the freshly pained bike lanes are once again in […]

OH YEAH! Is That an E-Bike?


I’m not opposed to e-bikes… just the ones that look like scooters and no one ever pedals.  This one on the other hand… is beautiful! Less than 0.5 percent of bicycle sales in the US are e-bikes. Last year in Germany, e-bikes were the fastest growing bike category with 410,000 e-bikes sold, 7.9 percent of […]

NEWSFLASH: E-Bikes are the furthest thing from “hip”

This guy is doing “biking to work” wrong if he shows up all sweaty.  Especially during this cool summer we’ve had.   His commute is a few kilometres and he can’t do it on a real bike?  I bike farther than him and have knee and back problems.  I take my commute easy though. That […]
