Jarvis St. bike lane removal met by protest

Jarvis St. bike lane removal called off for the day after sit-in protest

  The crew was less than a block into the job when 33-year-old Steve Fisher plunked down cross-legged in the truck’s path just north of Wellesley St E. “I know you’re doing your job, but I’m not going to move,” said Fisher, a freelance arts and culture writer who said he was twice hit by […]

How should the city react to civil disobedience in defence of the Jarvis Street bike lanes?

How should the city react to civil disobedience in defence of the Jarvis Street bike lanes?

Interesting piece on possible civil disobedience regarding the Jarvis bikelane removal.  Following bike stuff, it’s easy to get ensconced in a “bike bubble” and the different viewpoints here help see the issue from different points of view: When city crews finally begin erasing the bike lanes and restoring the reversible centre lane on Monday, they […]

Photos from the 2012 Ride for Jarvis

Photos from the 2012 Ride for Jarvis

Earlier tonight I took part in the Ride for Jarvis, organized by Cycle Toronto. It was smaller than last year, but there was still several hundred people there.  Here are some of the better photos I took with my phone (which doesn’t handle deep shadows well):   Gathering at Allan Gardens:   The Ride!   […]

Reminder: Ride for Jarvis Tonight

The Future of the Jarvis Bikelanes

On Monday, I posted about the Ride for Jarvis happening tonight… but I thought I’d send a reminder to try and ensure everyone knows about it and comes out for a great large ride in support of the Jarvis bikelanes. When: Wed, June 13th Time: 6pm Where: Allan Gardens (at Carleton and Jarvis – map) […]

Toronto Bike Month 2012

Toronto Bike Month 2012 [BlogTO] Toronto Bike Month 2012 is upon us, so if you haven’t already dusted off your helmet and climbed back in the saddle, now is definitely the the time to do it. The festivities kick off Monday with a group commute from Yonge and Bloor to downtown, and the City of Toronto and Cycle Toronto have […]

Have You Tried the New Jarvis? Tell Us About It!

We’ve put out a call on twitter for stories of the new Jarvis during rush hour this morning… and would like to extend the invitation here too. Did you try out the new Jarvis bikelanes this morning?  Did you like them?  Were cars still moving along just fine? I tried them out at approx. 8:20 […]

The Jarvis Bikelanes are Painted!

If you’ve been following our Jarvis Bikelane construction posts, you know we’ve had a Before post, a During post (which includes video) and another Video post.  Now we have what you’ve been waiting for… painted bikelane photos… again courtesy of Neal Jennings:

Video: Jarvis with 4 Car Lanes, Still no Gridlock

If you’ve seen our past Jarvis Bikelane Transition posts (before, during), you’ve seen the video Neal Jennings shot at 5:01 pm on Tuesday afternoon… showing that cars are moving just fine on Jarvis with 4 instead of 5 lanes for cars. He’s shot another video, at 5:33 pm on Thursday, capturing 90 seconds of traffic […]

Bike Unionist Busted for Biking down the Middle of Jarvis

What a tabloid-esque headline for a biking story! Yesterday, the Executive Director of the Toronto Cyclists Union, Yvonne Bambrick (I think she’s also the Director of Communication and Events, but I don’t know if she’s made the switch yet) received two tickets for riding her bike down the middle of Jarvis.  She now has two […]

Jarvis Street, During Bikelane Installation

Remember the horrific gridlock that was supposed to bring Jarvis to a standstill when it went from 5 lanes to 4? Hasn’t happened. Neal Jennings shot this video at 5:01 pm yesterday (Tuesday). We’re continuing our series of Jarvis Bikelane Photo Posts (see the “before” photos here) with a “During” post.  Photos again by Neal […]

Jarvis Street Middle Lane now Car-Free. Bikelanes Are Coming

jarvismiddle

I saw this on my way downtown this morning, and the Star has picked up on it too.  The city has made Jarvis into a 2-lanes-each-way street, striping off the middle lane with yellow lines in preparation for turning it into a bikelaned street.  It’s good to see drivers abiding by the yellow lines.  It’s […]

Jarvis Street, Before the Bikelanes

The process for installing bikelanes on Jarvis started on Friday, and not only those of us who like to bike Toronto are excited.  People who live in the area are looking forward to having the street become a little more people-friendly.  The new bikelanes will create a small “buffer” of road space between moving car […]

Jarvis starts getting Bikelanes this Friday!

Jarvis, pre-Bikelanes

We are happy to report that the July issue of Cyclometer has let us know that the Jarvis bikelanes installation will start this Friday, July 16th. You may remember that originally the re-configuration plans for Jarvis always called for the reduction of the street from 5 car lanes to 4, and that the original plans […]
