Sheppard Avenue: Toronto's next best bikeway?

We launched the Connect Sheppard campaign in June to advocate for the beginning of a network of connected, protected bike lanes on major roads in North York. Now is the first chance to move this project forward. The City is proposing big improvements for Sheppard Avenue from just east of Yonge Street to Leslie Street as well as Willowdale Avenue.

Action Alert: Support 2021 cycling projects and ask for more!

The next slate of proposed 2021 cycling infrastructure will be voted on at the May 25 Infrastructure and Environment Committee (IEC) meeting. Combined, they make up just over nine kilometres of new bike lanes. Scarborough doesn’t have a single centimetre. The projects are useful connections, but not enough to meaningfully build out a safe cycling network across the city.

Cycling Infrastructure Outside the Core

Cycling continues to factor heavily into our daily lives, but many of us have changed how we get around, where we go, and why we ride. There is a lot of cycling infrastructure throughout the city; sometimes in places you might not expect!
