The News Cycle for Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2011

‘I saw nothing but bike helmets for blocks’ [The Star]

She was 38. I am 38. She had a five-year-old. So do I. She was killed on an average day, pedalling down the same two-lane street she always did by a truck that didn’t have a metal fence under its hulking belly because it would cost more. (How much could it possibly cost, compared to the price of a truck? That’s fodder for another column.)

A Failure to Address the Intersection Problem [Duncan's City Ride]

 There are no words to describe my disappointment and disgust with a recently installed “major multi-use path” along the Bayview extension, but I’ll try.

Wheels of Misfortune [Toronto Standard]

I’m aware this is going to be a busy ride. And by the restaurant district in Little Italy, where bike lanes have not yet materialized, it’s tight single-file riding, as there are well over a dozen of us. By Spadina, it’s 20, then 25, then 30. Slow riders, fast riders, impatient riders. It’s busy, but not the kind of busy I had in mind. While I was away, Toronto seems to have developed a passion for bike transit.
