Birchmount bike lanes latest to bite the dust [BlogTO]

The Fixer: Cycling a better way to get around than it looks [Toronto Star]

The Fixer’s Jake Lakey rides around town with James Schwartz of The Urban Country and discovers that contrary to the mainstream media’s portrayal of cycling as dangerous, it’s actually relatively safe, fun, and connects people to the urban environment in a way that drivers never ever will experience in a car.

What’s Next for the Railpath? [Torontoist]

The West Toronto Railpath currently runs from approximately Dupont south to Dundas and has made an old railbed into an award-winning multi-use trail.  Torontoist looks at that the plans are for extending the railpath downtown.

Ride to Save the Pharmacy and Birchmount Bikelanes

Date & Time:
Tuesday, June 28, 2011 – 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm

Location:
Meet at the Victoria Park subway station

Help save the Pharmacy Av. and Birchmount Rd. Bike Lanes by joining us for a ride to raise awareness and to listen to what the local neighbours have to say.

Toronto City Council votes on July 13th to accept all or part of Mayor Rob Ford’s Bike Plan, which calls for the removal of the bike lanes installed in 2008 on Pharmacy Ave. & Birchmount Rd..

This is a matter of personal safety for everyone who uses the roads and we will ride on Tuesday to help save the lanes.

Please leave a comment to let us know your thoughts or whether you can make it or not.
