Hyedie Hashimoto’s idea of a sweet ride is hopping on her black road bike and zipping across Toronto from bakery to bakery, sampling cupcakes.

Covet: Retrovelo Frame Bag and TATO Commuter Bicycle

The Retrovelo frame bag is absolutely stunning.

While I will not join the ranks of the daily bike commuter, I will bike to work more regularly. I have also learned a few things. I felt safer when riding on dedicated bike lanes. I have a new appreciation for the complaint about people parking in bike lanes. Biking on secondary roads is less appealing because there are so many stop signs. I am not sure we have a rational plan for integrating bike lanes into our transportation network but I do believe we should keep trying.

Too bad you missed out on voting in favour of the University Avenue bike lane pilot project, those would have taken you directly to work!
