Lovely weekend for a bike ride although a wee bit cold and windy. This scene caught my eye on Saturday. Nice to see.

Waterfront redesign to include cycling


The long awaited redesign plans of Queens Quay look good. It's all over the papers today and Spacing has a nice article for more information.

Big sigh of relief for cycling along the waterfront once it all gets done.

I Bike Toronto 1976


During a recent visit to the Bike Pirates Geoff showed me this old 1976 Bike Route Announcement. Amazing.
As far as I know it was one of Toronto's first bike routes and even a quite extensive north-south corridor. Over 30 years later it's still a key bike lane/route in the Toronto and if you read the text on the announcement, it speaks volumes for how far we have come in terms of making Toronto a bicycle friendly city.
