The City of Toronto wants your feedback on the Richmond, Adelaide and Simcoe Street separated bikelanes.

Toronto will narrow many of the city’s traffic lanes in a bid to increase safety by reining in speeds while freeing up space for bicycle lanes or wider sidewalks.The city has just finished a new […]
