Cycle Toronto's 2019 Year in Review
2019 was a big year for cycling in Toronto, and bodes well for the next decade. We wanted to share our highlights with you as we head into the new year. Here they are in no particular order:
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.
