Duncan broke the story (and had a photo) yesterday of the new bike parking corral on Spadina yesterday, even beating out the Toronto Cyclists Union and Spacing Magazine, who were instrumental in getting the new parking put in (their offices are in the adjacent building – 215 Spadina): This new installation has created 16 much [...]
