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 […]

Ontario coroner calls for side guards on trucks; Ottawa says no

cyclist

Dear Ottawa: If the Ontario Coroner is calling for truck sideguards, there IS enough evidence that they save lives.  The Ontario Coroner uses evidence-based decision making. Ontario’s coroner renewed calls for mandatory side guards on trucks Wednesday, hours after a 25-year-old woman was crushed almost to death beneath the wheels of a truck in downtown […]

Bloor and Dupont Bikelanes on City Council Agenda

Council voted in July 2011 to halt an environmental assessment that was studying the possible impact of creating lanes on one of the city’s major streets. But city officials have now brought the issue back to the table, recommending that council allow a smaller Bloor assessment to be done at the same time as an […]

Cycle Toronto responds to the Rosie DiManno “Cyclists Should Be Shot” Article

Good on Cycle Toronto.  Read their response to Rosie DiManno’s “Cyclsts Should Be Shot” article (and probably the Star’s Public Editor Response calling it “a joke”) Cycle Toronto believes that road safety is a serious issue and one that must be discussed in a mature and respectful manner. We advocate for safer streets so that […]

Truck side guards should be mandatory: Olivia Chow

The NDP transportation critic has renewed her calls for the federal government to implement a private members bill she introduced in the House of Commons to make side guards mandatory on heavy trucks in Canada. It follows the deaths of several cyclists who died beneath the wheels of big trucks in Toronto and elsewhere. Cambridge, […]

City Council pursuing new safety measures for bike commuters

This is via the Cycle Toronto Facebook Page.  Cycle Toronto has been working hard pushing for all of these (see their letter to the Board of Health here).  Kudos to Jared, Siva, the Board and the many many wonderful volunteers of Cycle Toronto as well as TCAT and the Clean Air Partnership. City Council has […]

The Toronto Star’s public editor says “Cyclists Should Be Shot” article is a joke, and free speech

The Toronto Star’s public editor, Kathy English, has published a retort to people upset that their “opinion columnist” Rosie DiManno wrote that cyclists are sanctimonious and “should be shot”, saying that people are over-reacting to a joke and that DiManno has a right to write down those opinions, and that the Star has a right […]

TTC Subway Shutdown this weekend. Get your friends on their bikes.

The latest in the never-ending series of subway closures is this weekend and affects the ENTIRE downtown core.  Be sure and let your friends know that biking is way better than the TTC, even when trains are running. Help them out on their first rides if they are nervous. Getting around the downtown core this […]

Should the Scarborough RT become an elevated park?

Elevated separated bikelanes! Elevated separated bikelanes! City council adopted a motion during last night’s transit debate that asks city staff and the TTC to investigate replacing the tracks and electric rails with benches, walking paths, bike trails, and trees from Scarborough Centre to Kennedy station. Building the park may actually be cheaper than simply pulling […]

Rosie DiManno advocates for all cyclists to be shot

dimanno

Congratulations to Rosie DiManno, the troll who the Toronto Star still employs for unfathomable reasons, for passing Rob Ford on the list of peoople who are misguided about cycling in Toronto. I didn’t think it was possible.  Shame on the Toronto Star for employing someone advocating murder. …At least drivers don’t have the virtue that’s […]

Separated bike lanes planned in Eglinton re-design

eglintonsoon

Great news coming out of public consultations on what Eglinton may look like following construction of the Crosstown LRT. The above is a rendering of what Eglinton may look like, complete with green separated bikelanes.  It looks like a made-up part of the street, as I recognized those blue awnings from being from LOCATION.  Here’s […]

Toronto to consider sharrows on tiny section of Bay Street

This is a horrible horrible article entitled “Toronto City Council to consider bike lanes on Bay St“. 1) it’s only 50 metres of Bay Street, near Bloor, and 2) it’s only sharrows.  Sharrows are NOT bikelanes.  They pretty little things with good intentions, but don’t work at all. Drivers still try to force cyclists out […]

Cyclist almost hit by police chief’s vehicle

megpolice

I know Meghan. She would not make this up. A Toronto cyclist alleges she was almost hit by Police Chief Bill Blair’s SUV after it swerved into a bike lane. Meghan Orlinski was biking to class at Ryerson University Wednesday around 12 p.m. When she crossed the intersection at University Avenue and College Street and […]

“Living Walls” Proposed Along West Toronto Railpath and Train Tracks

Put your hand up if you’d rather see attractive and healthy green walls beside the Railpath instead of ugly soul-destroying concrete? In a press release issued on September 17, a community activist group called the Junction Triangle Rail Committee made a counterproposal: Instead of walls made of concrete, vinyl, or acrylic, why not use plants […]

Bloor Street bikelane being talked about (again)

Encouraging, but why not the Danforth too? The Danforth is wider than Bloor in most places and easily has room for bike infrastructure, plus bike-friendly councillors in Fletcher, McMahon, Davis and Fragedakis. Despite annual rides in support of more cycling infrastructure on the street, there has been no official movement on Bloor since the incomplete […]
