I personally don’t [...]

Does Harbord Need a Bi-Directional Separated Bikelane?

By | July 11, 2013

Harbord St. might be getting a shake-up as the city drafts plans for a bi-directional cycling track, coming in 2014. At a consultation at Kensington Gardens last week, planners heard out opinionated cyclists and unveiled plans to construct a route leading around the Queens Park Circle and continuing west to Ossington. Some expressed concerns over whether or not [...]

Sharrows Miss the Point on Harbord

By | October 28, 2010

In the cover of night, workers began installing sharrows along Harbord. A point of contention for years, the disconnected bike lane between Bathurst and Spadina has inspired Urban Repair Squad intervention and left Councilor Adam Vaughan singing the same old tune that the very sparse car parking on this strip is essential to the survival [...]

Urban Repair Squad Questions Harbord’s Missing Bike Lanes

By | September 23, 2010

Toronto’s anonymous group of activists known as the Urban Repair Squad are no stranger to Harbord Street. They’ve installed bike boxes, comically expressed the sensations of cycling along the street pre-repairs and now they’re questioning why, with fresh pavement laid, the Harbord bike lanes do not extend between Bathurst and Spadina.
