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 [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 [...]
Cycle Toronto says city data shows Jarvis safer for everyone with a bike lane [OpenFile] While the Toronto Cyclist’s Union Cycle Toronto’s effort to force the city to conduct a time-consuming environmental assessment before removing the Jarvis bike lanes continues, it’s published city collision data showing changes from the period before the bike lane was put in, and [...]
The Ride for Jarvis happened last night, and thankfully had a good turnout. I’ve seen estimates of between 900 -1200 cyclists. Here are some photos and a few words about the event: People start gathering at Allan Gardens. Lots of news media. It’s like a two-wheeled bike party. There were LOTS of bikes! [...]
The Toronto Cyclists Union is organizing a “Ride for Jarvis” tonight and plans to have hundreds of cyclists riding on Jarvis Street to show/protest/unify against City Hall decisions that are removing bikelanes and implying that a Torontonian who drives is more important than a Torontonian who bikes. This ride will attract 3 types of cyclist: [...]
The future of the Jarvis bikelanes is being decided today (or maybe tomorrow) by City Council. If you can’t make it to City Hall in person today (or tomorrow), you can watch the activities of Council via this live feed from Rogers. Need to know more info about Jarvis? The Jarvis Bikelane is Doomed, and [...]
I didn’t like writing the title of this post, but the following HAS to be said. We’re in danger of losing the 1-year-old Jarvis bikelanes as the Ford Mayoralty has shown that they believe (and they’re right) that the Torontonians that voted for Rob Ford and his idealogical counterparts voted for them to 1) reduce [...]
If you haven’t heard already, on Thursday the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee at City Hall voted to take out the Jarvis Bikelanes that were installed about a year ago. This is not the final decision on the Jarvis bikelanes though… the matter now goes to City Council on July 12-13, and the Toronto cycling [...]
A report released last night (and reported on by the Star) has shown what every cyclist in the city was saying last year… that adding the much-needed bikelanes on Jarvis Street would not significantly delay car traffic. The report confirms this – southbound traffic now takes 6-9 minutes (instead of the 6-8 minutes before the [...]
Perhaps he has actually started to notice how many voters ride bikes in Toronto, but Rocco Rossi, desperate to get some attention to somehow get past Joe Pantalone and Sarah Thomson in the mayoral race, has done a major flip-flop on the issue of bikelanes on major (arterial) streets. Not only has he flip-flopped on [...]
