How to Bike Through a Toronto Winter

Great how-to from Torontoist on biking in the winter, and I’m obviously adding this link to our How-To Page. Winter is on the way, meaning soon you’ll have no choice but to stop riding your bike and start spending a bunch of money on TTC fare. Or, you know, you could not do that. If […]

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 […]

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 […]

It follows the deaths of several cyclists who died beneath the wheels of big trucks in Toronto and elsewhere. Cambridge, […]

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.

When Jeff Taylor was hit by a car door while riding his bike in June, his fall was cushioned by a bulletproof vest. … Unlike the force he has served on for more than 20 years, Taylor thinks police should track the crashes. On Aug. 8, he sent a strongly worded email to the Toronto […]

Bicyclist charged in Mississauga senior’s death

Shui-Fen-Chan-473x315

So… yes.. this is good. Failing to remain at the scene of an accident is awful and I’m glad this person was charged. BUT.. this happens SO MANY times to cyclists.  Cars clip them and then just drive away, leaving the cyclists hurt and bleeding in the street.  Even when license plate numbers are recorded […]

One of the most ambitious studies of bicycle injuries ever conducted in Canada has reach a conclusion that won’t surprise anyone who rides to work: It is far safer to travel on a physically separated bike lane than on busy city streets.
