You may have caught our post with photos from the Ontario Cycling Association of last Saturday’s Cyclocross Championships, but have you seen Bikeroo’s crash video from the event? Yesterday, local bike shop ZM Cycle & Fitness hosted the national cyclocross race in Cedarvale Park in Toronto. The best cyclocross racers across Canada participated in the [...]
Duncan has posted a great video of a kind of Time Trial race up an old hilly cobblestone road in the Town of Frome in Somerset, England. It’s clearly a lot of fun: Uphill sprint races bring out costumed riders and kids! It’s the Cobble Wobble. Where in Toronto could we stage something like this? [...]
On Duncan’s City Ride, you can watch 3 excellent videos made by the Halifax Cycling Coalition: How do you promote cycling as a means of transportation? In Halifax, you lead the way by introducing people to everyday cyclists. The Halifax Cycling Coalition recently released several commercials in which we get to meet people who have [...]
From Duncan’s City Ride: Recently saw Charlie Winston perform at Osheaga in Montreal. There simply aren’t enough high energy, super fun performers like him around. This video is perfection. Happy long weekend, folks! See the video at Duncan’s City Ride
Blogger Stephen, on his Cycling50+ blog, discovers he has more in common with David Byrne than he thought: “Lady, if I was a truck you wouldn’t be doing that” oohahhahahaaaa. I thought david byrne would ride around NYC thinking of how to turn the Statue of Liberty into an oboe – but he’s thinking like [...]
If you’ve seen our past Jarvis Bikelane Transition posts (before, during), you’ve seen the video Neal Jennings shot at 5:01 pm on Tuesday afternoon… showing that cars are moving just fine on Jarvis with 4 instead of 5 lanes for cars. He’s shot another video, at 5:33 pm on Thursday, capturing 90 seconds of traffic [...]
Remember the horrific gridlock that was supposed to bring Jarvis to a standstill when it went from 5 lanes to 4? Hasn’t happened. Neal Jennings shot this video at 5:01 pm yesterday (Tuesday). We’re continuing our series of Jarvis Bikelane Photo Posts (see the “before” photos here) with a “During” post. Photos again by Neal [...]
Thanks to an email we just received from Patrick Guay of the Montreal band Da Gryptions, I present to you the video for their “Bixi Anthem”, which is getting popular on YouTube recently thanks to postings about the band and the song by Spacing Montreal, Momentum Magazine, the Montreal Gazette, and the National Post. Patrick [...]
Toronto Cyclist John Spragge has compiled a nice little montage of videos he has taken from his bike to demonstrate safe and unsafe passing by cars and trucks, from a cyclists’ perspective: Thanks John. Great video!
On Friday morning, I went over to the Bloor Viaduct to check out the new re-painted bikelanes, and while I was there fairly early decided to relax under some trees and count the people biking by on their way downtown to work. The Bloor Viaduct is one of the perfect places in Toronto to do [...]
Bells on Bloor happened today, with a reported 1500 cyclists taking part. If you missed it (or if you were there and want to see it again), here’s a video by mrtini on youtube. Flickr slideshow by martinreis: Flickr slideshow by red gecko productions:
Just came across a rendering of the proposed buffered bikelanes for University Avenue: Rendering via Torontoist. Want to know what buffered bikelanes are like? Here are some videos of other similar bikelanes in action. First off, NYC just opened up a median bikepath down the middle of Sands Street: You can also check out another [...]
The great weather has gotten Tino of BikeLaneDiary out on the West Toronto Railpath to take some video. Happy Good Morning Ride from Tino on Vimeo. Music by Leo Kottke.
Last night I went and checked out Icycle 2010, the Ice Bike Races held at Dufferin Grove Park every year. Beforehand, I met up with Todd and James Schwartz (of TheUrbanCountry.com) at 3-Speed (I highly recommend their sirloin burger) and we chatted about cycling, Toronto neighbourhoods and Chinese New Year. We then walked over to [...]
Toronto received a sizable dump of snow late last week, and it’s all melting this week (with forecast temperature highs for tomorrow of 9 degrees celcius). If you think urban winter cycling is crazy (which it’s really not, at least in Toronto), check out this video of guys cycling in all manner of winter conditions.
