At the last Public Works and Infrastructure meeting, Councillor De Baeremaeker asked to make a part-time bike lane. We found out at the Toronto Cycling Advisory Committee (TCAC) meeting that he had backed off of this idea, and we will be getting a full-time bike lane. But I thought it was in interesting idea that is worth considering.
Dear concerned cyclist,
[Editors: We welcome Luke, our newest blogger! He may be new to making deputations but he's an old hand at using the English language to our benefit.] What do you get when you mix a rookie depu-tant, politicians and an agenda? Motion sickness and appendicitis. And maybe some insight as well. Let me explain.
The way I see it we have two choices. Wait for the city to get things done and make cycling safe for all in Toronto or get citizens like Murray Teitel to lead the way. I am with Murray. You can read about his vision in the Post. You could also follow the Carfree Cities Conference going on this week in Portland.
Taken from Cyclometer June 2008:
The Globe is reporting today that the new 'Mink Mile' will not include bike lanes.
'Mr. Egan said traffic volumes - 30,000 cars a day - meant that the new narrower Bloor still needed four lanes and could not accommodate full-size bike lanes. However, he said the street could be retrofitted with bike lanes later.'
