In this video from CTV Vancouver Island - posted May 23, 2012 – participants left from various points in the city of Victoria British Columbia, one driving a car, the other a bicycle – to see which one could get to the same destination fastest.
The Bikes won hands down.
One problem – the bike representatives didn’t seem to be aware that they had to follow traffic laws during the trials!
Still, I’d bet that a test of this here in Toronto would show that the bicycle IS faster than a car in rush hour traffic. Different distances from different areas of the city might reveal some interesting metrics.
Next year during Bike Month we should try this here in Toronto.
