We did it. The past two days have been huge for fans of cycling and active transportation initiatives at City Hall! With the help of our volunteers, members, donors, supporters, plus City staff and City Councillors, Cycle Toronto was able to continue the momentum that was generated with the rapid installation of the popular ActiveTO program.
Many of Toronto’s bike lanes are not permanent, they are part of ActiveTO. If City Council does not hear support from constituents, they could be ripped out faster than they were installed. Sign the petition to keep ActiveTO bike lanes now.

I started bike commuting in February of 2010. At the time, I didn’t even think about how I was going to deal with snowy roads; I couldn’t afford to get to work any other way. Luckily, in 2010, Toronto had one of the lowest snowfall totals in recent history, and I made it to work safely every day.
