Some of you may remember the funky Parkdale Bikerack sculptures I took pictures of during the Smells of Toronto Ride last year… well happily, the bikerack sculpture program has been expanded!

Torontoist: Insane in the Bikelane

Torontoist Marc Lostracco posted a great article a couple weeks ago that I’ve been meaning to post about for awhile… about the sad state of roads and specifically bikelanes in Toronto: Probably the most staggeringly stupid allowance is how contractors tearing-up the road surface aren’t required to return it to its original state, but only […]

Especially after I posted about the possibility of Yonge Street losing a lane (and gaining sidewalk) a couple weeks ago… It looks like Yonge Street may be getting bikelanes, but it’s only from Front to Queens Quay. Sure, it would be nice to […]

This Street Furniture Thing Is A Rip-Off

I posted about this last week, but thought I’d do it again because I think the City is being short-sighted and being ripped off by this whole Street Furniture thing. Above is one of the proposed bikeracks, although nothing is wrong with our iconic post-and-rings. Other things advertising companies are proposing are bus shelters (didn’t […]
