NEWS: Protected Bike Lanes on Eglinton Approved by Public Works

20131009-Eglinton-Aerial[1].img_assist_custom-530x382

This is such a great news story.  THIS is what cycling advocacy is all about. Two years ago, a senior City staffer told me that we’d never achieve bike lanes on Eglinton. I reflected on this as I watched the Public Works & Infrastructure Committee (PWIC) unanimously approve the Eglinton Connects Environmental Assessment last week, which includes […]

INFRASTRUCTURE: Eglinton LRT plan calls for $150 million in streetscaping

Residents seldom heap praise on city hall. But there were plenty of kudos this week for the city’s plans to beautify Eglinton Ave. after the Eglinton-Scarborough Crosstown LRT opens in 2020, including construction of what would be Toronto’s longest bike lanes.

NEWS: Separated Bike Lanes are coming to Eglinton!

20131009-Eglinton-Aerial[1].img_assist_custom-530x382

Pardon my galactica, but holy frack, this is amazing.  It’s for stuff like this that I’m proud to be a CycleToronto member, and recommend membership to everyone I know. The City is redesigning the streetscape along Eglinton as part of the Eglinton Connects planning project. Amazingly, the City is recommending full, separated bike lanes for […]

INFRASTRUCTURE: Planning bikelanes with little thought about safe biking routes?

The fine folks in the Cycle Toronto Ward18 Group have written an open letter to Dan Egan, Manager of Cycling Infrastructure at the City.  New contra-flow bikelanes are planned in the west end, but have seemingly been planned with little thought about the safety of the overall route… specifically crossing Dufferin: Mr. Daniel Egan, Manager […]

TONIGHT: Public Meeting – Richmond and Bathurst Bikelanes

65a4d2

The City of Toronto is proposing to install two new bike lane connections in the Richmond and Bathurst area: • Richmond Street: A contra-flow bicycle lane west of Bathurst Street, to allow cyclists to legally travel in both directions, while maintaining one-way only for motorists • Bathurst Street: A bicycle lane between Richmond Street and Adelaide Street, to allow […]

EVENT: Contraflow bikelane public meetings on Mar. 4 and 6

577407_808943175787199_965192175_n

via the CycleToronto facebook page Contraflow bike lanes give bikes their own lane to go against the flow of traffic on a one-way street. So on a westbound one-way street, both bikes and cars can go west using the regular lane, but bikes can also go east using the contraflow bike lane. Adding contraflow bike […]

FAIL: E-scooters now legal in Toronto bike lanes

The idea was first proposed in a staff report to the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee in January, but at the time councillors on the committee rejected it.   But when the report came before council late Thursday evening, members reversed the earlier decision, voting 23-17 to approve the report’s original recommendations. Most of council’s right […]

Review: Shaw Street bike route

IMG_0060-001-600x450

It has been a rather trying winter for cyclists in Toronto. Besides the unseasonably cold temperatures, the snow and ice has made cycling difficult. Bike lanes are left partly or completely snow-covered — only the occasional thaw manages to clear the lanes. But during one of those few days this winter where the snow had a chance […]

E-Bikes not allowed in bike lanes … for now.

Good news… the decision about whether to allow electric scooters (some people call them e-bikes) into Toronto’s bikelanes has been deferred: E-bikes won’t be granted access to Toronto bike lanes just yet, after a recommendation before the City’s public works committee was deferred this afternoon. The report in question makes a distinction between two type […]

Write the Public Works Committee about electric scooters in bike lanes.

E-bike riders seek equality with pedal-pushing counterparts

CycleToronto has a great rundown of what the city’s proposal to allow “e-bikes” in bikelanes will mean for Toronto’s cyclists.  Be sure and click through and send an email to the Public Works Committee about why this is a misguided proposal. This Thursday, members of Public Works & Infrastructure Committee will consider a set of […]

Toronto Fails Again: City to allow E-Bikes in bike lanes

In a move that is entirely consistent with Toronto giving higher priority to those who choose to get around our city with help of a motor, there are reports that City Staff are going to recommend that E-Bikes be allowed in bikelanes. If you’re not moving under your own power, get out of the bikelanes. […]
