COVID-19

The way we advocate has changed a lot during COVID-19. Cycle Toronto continues to advocate for our major campaigns, including bike lanes on Bloor, Danforth, Yonge, and Eglinton. In addition to continuing to advocate for infrastructure on these streets, we are also calling for a rebalancing of space on our streets for temporary active transportation routes.

Cycling Infrastructure Outside the Core

From leafy trails to rustic bridges, there are many examples of cycling infrastructure all across the city. Here are some of our favourites.
