City Council pursuing new safety measures for bike commuters

This is via the Cycle Toronto Facebook Page.  Cycle Toronto has been working hard pushing for all of these (see their letter to the Board of Health here).  Kudos to Jared, Siva, the Board and the many many wonderful volunteers of Cycle Toronto as well as TCAT and the Clean Air Partnership.

Should the Scarborough RT become an elevated park?

Elevated separated bikelanes! Elevated separated bikelanes! City council adopted a motion during last night’s transit debate that asks city staff and the TTC to investigate replacing the tracks and electric rails with benches, walking paths, bike trails, and trees from Scarborough Centre to Kennedy station. Building the park may actually be cheaper than simply pulling […]

eglintonsoon

Great news coming out of public consultations on what Eglinton may look like following construction of the Crosstown LRT. The above is a rendering of what Eglinton may look like, complete with green separated bikelanes.  It looks like a made-up part of the street, as I recognized those blue awnings from being from LOCATION.  Here’s […]

Bloor Street bikelane being talked about (again)

Encouraging, but why not the Danforth too? The Danforth is wider than Bloor in most places and easily has room for bike infrastructure, plus bike-friendly councillors in Fletcher, McMahon, Davis and Fragedakis. Despite annual rides in support of more cycling infrastructure on the street, there has been no official movement on Bloor since the incomplete […]

Construction to begin on Wellesley Street separated bikelane

The initial phase of installation will see separated lanes placed on Wellesley Street from Parliament to Yonge streets. The remainder of the route, covering Wellesley Street West, connecting through Queen’s Park, and along Hoskin and Harbord streets to Ossington Street, will be installed next year. Most of the route already has painted bike lanes installed, […]

Anti-urban bakery against Harbord bikelanes

  Cycle Toronto is organizing a “love-in” at the bakery on Sept. 21 to gently protest the store’s position. A Facebook group encourages bikers to show up wearing helmets as identification. “We just want to tell the Harbord Bakery that their customers are cyclists, too,” said Kolb. “We love their pastries and their breads — but […]

VIDEO: Comparing Bike Infrastructure in Toronto and Montreal

bike-stop-light-600x400

Both Toronto and Montreal have made progress towards creating a connected network of bike lanes, yet each has taken a different approach. In the 1980s, Montreal became one of the earliest cities in Canada to install segregated on-street cycling infrastructure, whereas Toronto started to install the majority of its on-street painted bike lanes in early […]

Does Harbord Need a Bi-Directional Separated Bikelane?

Harbord

Harbord St. might be getting a shake-up as the city drafts plans for a bi-directional cycling track, coming in 2014. At a consultation at Kensington Gardens last week, planners heard out opinionated cyclists and unveiled plans to construct a route leading around the Queens Park Circle and continuing west to Ossington. Some expressed concerns over whether or not […]

Bloor St. Bikelane ready for a comeback?

A longstanding and controversial plan to build bike lanes on Bloor St. is back on City Hall’s agenda.  Six downtown councillors submitted a letter to the public works committee on Wednesday asking for an environmental assessment of the project to be revived. Council approved the assessment in October 2007, but it was halted soon after […]
