Last night I went and checked out Icycle 2010, the Ice Bike Races held at Dufferin Grove Park every year. Beforehand, I met up with Todd and James Schwartz (of TheUrbanCountry.com) at 3-Speed (I highly recommend their sirloin burger) and we chatted about cycling, Toronto neighbourhoods and Chinese New Year. We then walked over to [...]

Awesome video and post from Streetsblog of bikelanes down the middle of Sands Street in NYC… where they replaced some unused road space with lanes! Chalk up more bikeway innovation to the folks at the NYC Department of Transportation. Nearly complete, the Sands Street approach to the Manhattan Bridge is now safer and more enjoyable [...]
Biking with 5D Mark II from Sam Javanrouh on Vimeo. Sam has a fantastic photoblog. Here’s a cool tour of downtown Toronto. Biking with no hands with an expensive camera scares me though.
Brilliant and hilarious video from the always fantastic Streetfilms site in NYC: This line cracked me up: “Bikers think that they own the road, they dodge in front and they dart, and you know… I feel unsafe!“
A great comment was left yesterday on BikingToronto by Tamy, a Montreal resident who *loves* her city and the new Bixi bikesharing program. So much so that she made a video about seeing Montreal by Bixi! Toronto is looking at Bikesharing too, so lets hope this video is widely seen. Here’s Tamy’s comment, with the [...]

Make sure you are using Internet Explorer.. the below video doesn’t seem to work in [...]
