On a brisk Tuesday evening, about 100 residents gathered at Bloor Collegiate Institute, near Bloor and Dufferin, to rally for a westward extension of the Bloor bike lanes. On the ride over from our office near Queen and Spadina, we felt the stark difference between riding in the protected bike lanes, which end at Shaw Street and riding on Bloor west of Shaw with no infrastructure, negotiating the precious little space between parked cars and motor vehicle traffic—with only our bells and voices to carve out a pathway.
