Live Stream Panel: Cycling in the City
September 26th is when the 7th annual Ride for Safe Streets presented by Bike Law Canada would be taking place. In lieu riding together this year, we wanted to convene participants to reflect on all the reasons we ride. In the midst of all that has happened in 2020, it is safe to say that it has been a boom year for biking in Toronto. The city has had a historic year with over 40km of bike lanes installed. Recent polling shows that support for more bike lanes is as high as 85%. This year is also a ten-year low for people being killed or seriously injured by traffic violence. Do all these signs simply point to a slam-dunk for road safety, or is there more to explore? Join us, as our panelists dive into these questions.
