UPDATE: It sounds like temporary bikelanes are coming. Maybe. Hopefully. I just rode home over the viaduct and sections of the eastbound bikelane are closed. Giant jersey concrete barriers are in the way with signs saying the bikelane is closed and cyclists should merge with traffic. I can’t, as someone who rides the […]
UPDATE: Cycle Toronto likes the below response. They interpreted it differently than I did, and that’s okay. However, I would like to point out that the very last paragraph of the city’s response is a damning one: The objective is to strike the appropriate balance between separation design, education and enforcement to ensure that Simcoe, […]

We’ll be running streetcar ads in September to “normalize” bike commuting for people who might be hesitant to try riding to work or school.

The beautiful landscape and moderate climate make cycling an easy, year-round activity. We’re not alone, either. Our #bikeYVR campaign features fun and playful photos of twelve Vancouverites – of all […]
