Toronto’s Bike Plan due to be finished in 158 years

Bike Plan timeline final.img_assist_custom-519x622

Fabulous infographic by Cycle Toronto: The City of Toronto continues to be stuck in neutral when it comes to installing bike lanes. In 2013, the City installed zero kilometres of protected bike lanes and 2.4 kilometres painted bike lanes. At the current rate, it will take 158 years to reach the 2001 Bike Plan’s target […]

More Bikes than Cars using College Street

1012810_763624930319024_802202988_n

This is beautiful stuff. I won’t even get all persnickety about the graph further down the post with a y axis that doesn’t start at zero. I shall keep my inner data geek in check. Cycle Toronto observed this trend this fall, when it counted more bikes than cars on College St. On Thurs Sept 19th, from […]

Cyclists rally for Lansdowne bike lanes after 4 year delay

857933_10153415293475375_868746131_o

Great article by Spacing.  Horrible insight into city processes.  People complaining about the loss of a few car parking spaces delays City Council decisons.  Unbelievable. As night descended on MacGregor Playground on Oct. 29, cyclists clad in ghoulish garb rallied in support of Lansdowne Ave. bike lanes that Toronto council approved in 2009 and 2010, […]

Cycle Toronto responds to the Rosie DiManno “Cyclists Should Be Shot” Article

Good on Cycle Toronto.  Read their response to Rosie DiManno’s “Cyclsts Should Be Shot” article (and probably the Star’s Public Editor Response calling it “a joke”) Cycle Toronto believes that road safety is a serious issue and one that must be discussed in a mature and respectful manner. We advocate for safer streets so that […]
