Every day I hear Bells on Bloor

Every day I hear bells on Bloor.

Bike Lanes on BloorWalking down the street, I hear bells. Sitting and sipping in a coffee shop, I hear bells. At the library, running errands, meeting with friends, and all the time, I hear bells.

Each one of those bells is connected to a cyclist. A mother riding her bicycle to work. A family riding their bikes home from the park. Students riding their bikes to class.

And each one of those bells is asking so little of you. That bell is a kind request for a little attention and a little space. “See me,” says these bells.

On Saturday, May 29th, 2010, a symphony of bells launched from High Park and made its way with music and joy to Queen’s Park. Bells on Bloor brings together the individual bells you hear on Bloor Street each and every day and asks for attention, we ask you for bike lanes on Bloor.

  1. Cool Event!
    Great photos/reporting.

  2. Great photos I agree, but really what we need is protected bike lanes on Bloor and other main routes. When they eliminated the street car tracks from Bloor they should have done it then. But then that would be too much foresight for the city.

  3. The web has truly changed the way we communicate and made it far easier to stay informed about the lives of our loved ones.
    However Yahoo marketing and other pay per click search engines offer some excellent traffic
