Cycle Toronto Calls on City of Toronto to Investigate Streetcar Track Hazards [Cycle Toronto]

On Monday, August 6, 2012, a Toronto cyclist was involved in a fatal accident when his wheel got stuck in a streetcar track and he was thrown off his bicycle as a result. The incident occurred on Wychwood Ave., south of St. Clair Ave., where the existing streetcar tracks have been out of service since 1978.

Janet Calder, who witnessed the accident, said the bike got caught in a stretch of streetcar track. “The track held on to the wheel, it threw him, he fell on the concrete, split his head open,” she said.

EMS said the man was pronounced dead at the scene, though police haven’t determined whether the fall or a medical condition led to his death.

Leaner, faster, friendly: how cops on bikes are good for cities [OpenFile]

Cruising the streets with Lisa Ferris is like taking a holiday from many of the stresses that normally come with cycling in Toronto’s downtown. While we still have to watch for streetcar doors and oblivious pedestrians, no one yells at us from car windows. No one blasts the horn because we’ve taken a lane. The police standing guard at construction sites wave cheerful hellos as we pass.

Muslim cyclist’s plan to visit 30 mosques complicated by bike theft [CBC News]

A Toronto Muslim who has pledged to cycle to 30 mosques during Ramadan has been forced off the road.

Himy Syed had received a new bicycle as a Ramadan gift from his brother and sister-in-law so he could blog and tweet stories about the various Muslim communities.

Helmet cams popular with Toronto cyclists [CBC News]

A growing number of Toronto cyclists are using helmet cams to record aggressive drivers and upload the incidents online, Jermaine Hylton reports.

Police say riders and motorists have the right to record incidents with a helmet cam, but that if they feel harrassed the best thing to do is file a complaint.

Origin stories: The tale of the ubiquitous Toronto bike ring [OpenFile]

The Long Branch Foundry has been Toronto’s bike ring manufacturer for more than 25 years. It also recently won the $78,000 tender to produce 1,000 new rings for the city, which have been redesigned so they can no longer be easily broken by bike thieves.
For owner Luigi Soda — a “master foundryman,” according to the ring’s designer, David Dennis — spotting the ubiquitous bike rings around Toronto has become a point of pride.
