What happens on the empty closed-down streets of Los Angeles before the L.A. Marathon? Magic. #CrashTheCrash – YouTube.
Come on Toronto. If the Finnish can bike all winter, we can too. Aren’t there entire commercials by beer companies, Tim Hortons and Canadian Tire about how hearty Canadians are? Let’s get out there and enjoy it. via The Winter Cycling Capital of the World – Momentum Mag.
In case you haven’t seen it yet – a great video from Amsterdam. There’s no valid reason downtown Toronto can’t be like this. Let’s work on it? via: Urban Planet: Bicycle Anecdotes from Amsterdam | Spacing National.
Both Toronto and Montreal have made progress towards creating a connected network of bike lanes, yet each has taken a different approach. In the 1980s, Montreal became one of the earliest cities in Canada to install segregated on-street cycling infrastructure, whereas Toronto started to install the majority of its on-street painted bike lanes in early [...]
This is an absolutely amazing how-to video for people looking into getting into cycling for commuting or just running errands, meeting friends etc. It’s made by the obviously awesome people at Grist. Needless to say, I’ll be adding this to the Biking Toronto How-To Resource Page.
Filmmaker Sasha Thomas recently released this short documentary on Toronto’s City Seed Farms and its founder Erica Lemieux. Read the full post: “Bike-powered urban farming documentary” on Spacing Toronto .
Vancouver’s Velo Vision: Safe Biking for All Ages from Streetfilms on Vimeo. Great video from Streetfilms about biking on our west coast.
I am so proud of the awesome people at Dandyhorse Magazine and Steamwhistle for putting together this amazing video for the Attagirl song “Keep You”. It’s the perfect combination of sounds and visuals, and there are bikes everywhere. I can’t express how much I love this vid.
On Friday morning I propped my phone up on the rear rack of my bike and captured 16 minutes of morning bike commuters streaming westbound over the Prince Edward Viaduct. If you or someone you know traversed the Viaduct between 8:43 and 8:59 AM on Friday, you’re in this video. The Viaduct is one of [...]

As I mentioned when I posted photos from the Sweet Ride: Cupcake Edition on Sunday, I also took about 100 short videos during the ride, and have been editing them on my phone. I’m finally done, and was able to take 11 minutes of video down to 3.5, as well as pairing it with a [...]
This video taken during the finals of the Toronto BMX Jam at the Bike Show on the weekend is INSANE. Insanely good, but insane. I’m kind of mad I missed it. Insanity – Toronto bmx jam 2012 from Will Anderson on Vimeo.
Last night saw the 2012 edition of the Ice Bike Races (or Icycle Races) at Dufferin Grove Park. I was able to freeze off my fingers and toes taking 70+ video clips with my phone and have edited them into one 4 minute video of a lot of the action. I’ve coupled it with a [...]
This past Saturday was Toronto’s first Tweed Ride. It was immensely successful (we estimated about 200 people showed up) and this will be an annual event. We kept hearing again and again how much fun everyone had and how they can’t wait until next fall when we do it all again (and hopefully bigger and [...]
I had such a good time filming everyone on the “Ride for Jarvis, Ride for Toronto” ride on Wednesday (and then speeding it up and putting it to music), I thought it would be interesting to do something similar to watch traffic patterns at an intersection. I found a place I could see most of [...]
