Earlier today we let you know that police were looking for an e-biker / e-scooter user who had assaulted a cyclist in the Spadina & Harbord area: The driver of the e-scooter allegedly punched the cyclist several times in the face before driving away, police say. The suspect is described as white, 5-foot-six, with shoulder-length [...]

With the exception of a handful of activists, we have tacitly accepted that roads are for cars and that parks and sidewalks for cyclists (and dodging and hiding are for squirrels and pedestrians). But consider cities where mayors view bicycles as more than speed bumps for road-raged motorists. How much better could Toronto have it [...]
Toronto police say a cyclist suffered severe head injuries when he was struck by a taxi on University Avenue on Wednesday afternoon. Paramedics said they were informed of the crash at around 2:45 p.m. Read the full post: “Cyclist struck by taxi, suffers severe head injuries” on CBC Toronto.
Schwartz, who works in technology consulting and blogs about cycling on the side, wanted to try biking to the airport for a long time. He flies every few weeks for work. “But it hasn’t been practical because my other bike doesn’t support a big suitcase,” he said. Schwartz decided to ride his cargo bike to [...]
BikingToronto linked to articles about the closure of this brand new pedestrian and cycling bridge Saturday (The Grid), Sunday (BlogTO) and yesterday (CBC), and now the Star has some info on when the Puente de Luz / Bridge of Light may be open again. (also – is it just me or does a bridge named [...]
Toronto now has two more kilometres of paved recreational space in the Don Valley, thanks to the recent completion of the East Don Trail. The new path, which links Milne Hollow Park—at Lawrence Avenue and the DVP— to Moccasin Trail Park, and a bridge leading into the Wynford-Concorde neighbourhood, officially opened in a ceremony [...]
TheGrid and BlogTO have covered this story… now the CBC is getting in on it, complete with video (after they make you watch an ad): Residents of the CityPlace condo development are angry after a brand new footbridge that links their building with the downtown core was ordered closed by the city. The bridge spans [...]
Posted another article about this yesterday, via theGrid. BlogTO has one too: Although officials are staying tight-lipped about the details, Helen Noehammer, the City’s Director of Development Engineering, revealed in an email that “a number of deficiencies were identified” during the inspection process. Concord Adex has thus restricted access to the bridge until it can [...]
First of a few articles recently about the new bridge over the rail lands being closed already. The bridge was designed by Chilean sculptor Francisco Gazitua; its name, translated, means “Bridge of Light,” and it was, as a press release by CityPlace developers Concord Adex noted, “chosen to signify the link between North and South [...]
“Normally, I would take my bike on the train with me, but you’re not allowed to in rush hour,” says Orr, a vegan-dessert chef. “I was like, ‘It’s one weekend. It’s not a big deal…’ So I locked it up. And I’ll regret it forever.” When Orr returned to the city this past noon on [...]
Friday night, a terrifying thing happened in the name of complete-streets activism: zombies on bikes. Technically, the event was October’s edition of the monthly Critical Massgroup bike ride. But it had taken on some additional meaning, thanks to city council’s recent decision to reject a last-minute bid to prevent the Jarvis Street bike lanes from being removed. [...]
Getting reluctant cyclists to brave their bikes in the middle of winter is the reason a few towns in the Netherlands are now considering passively heating their bike paths to provide drier, more comfortable roads. In this report from the Netherlands De Telegraaf news site, the Dutch Cyclists Union enthuses over the possibility of pavement warmed up by underground [...]
I love urban planning stuff. Urban planning that advocates for well designed streets as public places? Big heart on. The National Organization of City Transportation Officials (NACTO), a network of big-city transportation departments, today released the Urban Street Design Guidebook, created in an effort to outline the “21st-century demands” of urban streets, writes NACTO president [...]
