TOURISM: Sightseeing by pedal power: Toronto (doesn’t) tout cycle tourism options

This article is basically an ad for Toronto Bicycle Tours… but more interesting is that it is NOT about Toronto touting cycle tourism options but that we are failing… that cycle tourism is big business and Toronto is letting it slip away by ignoring cycling infrastructure.  Make EVERY street bike-friendly.  Not just one here and […]

OH YEAH: Why Riding Your Bike Makes You A Better Person

Overall a good read. Too much emphasis on cycling for recreation though. All of these things apply to even cyclists like me who mainly just commute to work and go on an occasional longer ride for the fun of it. From the 2,500-mile Pacific Crest Bicycle Trail to the colorful RAGBRAI across Iowa — complete […]

INFRASTRUCTURE: ‘Idaho stop’ is one hot potato

stop_sign.jpg.size.xxlarge.letterbox

The part of this whole debate that drives me nuts is the double standard between bikes and cars.  Everyone jumps all over cyclists when they don’t come to a complete stop at a stop sign on a deserted residential street… but don’t worry about it if cars do it… and EVERY car does it… all […]

ADVOCACY: Ghost bikes move us all

Many of the cycling activists who installed a ghost bike memorial at Spadina south of Dundas last fall didn’t know Carla Warrilow. She was struck and dragged under a truck while cycling on October 16, 2013. It took firefighters 15 minutes to free her, and she died a week later from her injuries. Ghost bikes […]

NEWS: It’s time for Toronto’s second-class cyclists to take over our streets

You GO Christopher Hume!  The revolution will be bicyclized! haha. Seriously though… his point is a valid one… with more infrastructure, the number of cyclists in this city will explode exponentially, making bikelanes and infrastructure not only the right thing to do, but politically feasible to those at City Hall. The problem with this city […]
