We are excited to announce the renewal of funding for our Bikes Now (now called Network Now) collaboration with the David Suzuki Foundation! In 2016, we set out to build a constituency and a culture that support cycling in Toronto by forging partnerships with a strong coalition of groups, including schools, residents’ associations, BIAs, physicians, pedestrian advocacy groups, and leading city-builders. Most notably, we built advocacy capacity on major corridors with our Bloor, Danforth and Yonge working groups.
Our 2018 Annual Report is hot off the presses.
From building support to accelerate the Cycling Network Plan, to coordinating our biggest Bike Month yet, to offering workshops to residents across the City, together we moved the needle on building a cycling-friendly city for all.
If the roads were covered with snow or ice, would you say it’s too dangerous to drive?
Of course you would, but we expect a certain level of service to ensure that we won’t be forced to drive in lanes that haven’t been cleared and salted. The same is true for bike lanes in many cities, and it is the vision of Toronto’s Cycling Snow Routes Network.
Changes are afoot at City Hall
We're keeping a close watch on all the changes at City Hall resulting from Premier Doug Ford’s cut to local representation. We want to support our members in ensuring that our community is making the most of Toronto's new governance structure.
From #MinimumGrid to #BuildTheGrid
Since the municipal election in 2014, Cycle Toronto has called for a grid of protected bike lanes across our city. In the time since then, we have had mixed success at City Council. We’ve made hard-won gains including protected bike lanes on Richmond and Adelaide, the approval of a 10-Year Cycling Network Plan, and permanent bike lanes on Bloor, but progress has been frustratingly slow.
We're welcoming a new term of Council.
On October 22, 2018, Torontonians elected our Mayor and Councillors, who make crucial decisions affecting transportation in our city - including how we design our streets.
We collected responses to our three #BuildtheGrid questions, part of a 15-question #BuildtheVisionTO survey administered and analyzed by a coalition of road safety advocates.
