How Bike-Friendly is your City Councillor?

It feels as though the municipal election campaign has been going on forever, but we’re finally at Election Day.  Remember to get out there and vote. Your City Councillors: We put together a cool graph (to the right and below, click to enlarge) a few weeks ago that documents how bike-friendly a bunch of Councillors […]

Bike Ride for Bike Lanes on Bloor

Bike Lanes on Bloor

There’s a “Bike Lanes on Bloor” ride being planned for this Saturday, Oct. 23 – to bring attention to the cause right before the municipal election on Mon, Oct. 25th. With an election on Monday, let’s tell candidates how attractive bike lanes on Bloor could be, and how necessary for our safety, and to fight […]

How Bike-Friendly is your City Councillor?

Bike-Friendly City Councillors

A couple days ago we let you know about the Bike Union publishing how a bunch of City Councillors (the ones who participated in TCATs election survey) have voted on bikelane installation motions before City Council during the last few years. Here at BikingToronto we decided to take it one step further and figure out […]

Where Candidates Stand On Cycling Issues

Bike-Friendly?

The Toronto Cyclists Union is continuing their excellent work on getting cyclists involved in the municipal elections of Oct. 25th. They’ve just released a wrap-up (PDF) of the voting records of every member of City Council on all bike-related decisions, which they made with the help of the Election Survey done by TCAT recently: Check […]

A Map of Rossi’s Separated Bikelanes

rossimap

A few days ago we told you about Rocco Rossi’s Flip-Flop on bikelanes on major streets (he likes the idea now). The Toronto Star has published a map (above) of where these physically-separate bikelanes would be. Rossi’s proposed network includes east-west lanes on Richmond St. between Parliament and Bathurst Sts., and the existing Wellesley Ave.-Harbord […]

TCAT Releases Results of Election Survey

TCAT

The Toronto Coalition for Active Transportation (TCAT) released the results of its 2010 Municipal Candidate Election Surveys yesterday: TCAT surveyed all Toronto candidates to provide voters the candidates’ views on active transportation issues and the concrete steps that can be taken to improve cycling and walking in Toronto.

Sarah Thomson drops out of Mayoral Race

Sarah Thomson has dropped out of Toronto’s mayoral race and put her support behind George Smitherman. This is big news for cycling because Thomson’s “BikeCity” plan was the most thorough and best researched cycling platform out there (of the “Big Five” contenders of Ford, Smitherman, Rossi, Pantalone and Thomson herself).  Whatever you thought of her […]

Some Mayoral Candidates ride with the Bike Union

This morning saw some of the candidates for mayor join the Toronto Cyclists Union for a little symbolic ride and press conference downtown today: The 30 minute ride, which stayed within the downtown core, allowed candidates to experience almost the full range of scenarios faced on a daily urban commute by bicycle.  The ride took […]

Rocco Rossi Flip-Flops on Bikelanes

rossi-150x150

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 […]

George Smitherman signs up for Bixi Toronto

0907smitherman

Bixi Toronto had a demo station set up at the Brickworks yesterday, and mayoral candidate (and possible Rob Ford killer, depending on how anti-Ford sentiment coalesces) George Smitherman decided to stop by, try it out, and sign up. Smitherman has been a little bit all over the map on the bike issue during this campaign.  […]

Sarah Thomson releases “Bike City” Plan

Today saw mayoral candidate Sarah Thomson release her bicycle transportation policy, dubbed Bike City. Sarah and/or her team has done their homework on this to attract people who love biking… proposing a good chunk of new cycling infrastructure features (ie. bike boxes, bicycle boulevardes, etc) and physically separate bikelanes on University Ave, Richmond Street and […]

Rob Ford releases “Transportation Plan”

Mayoral candidate (and current frontrunner) Rob Ford has released his “transportation plan” (PDF). The contents of the plan can be summed up as follows: Streetcars are bad.  TransitCity should not be built because an efficient wide-ranging Light Rail Transit system costs 1/10 as much as an equivalent subway system… but subway promises get votes.  Not […]

citycouncil

Following up on the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee discussions of a couple weeks ago regarding implementing a BikeSharing system in Toronto as well as improvements to the Bikeway Network, both of these items go before Toronto City Council tomorrow.
