Bike Plans in Other Cities: Mississauga, Ottawa, Waterloo and London
By Claire McFarlane
For the latest edition of Bike Plans in Other Cities, we decided to explore plans from some of Ontario’s smaller cities that could potentially serve as inspiration for the revamping of Toronto’s bike plan. You can also read about other cities’ bike plans in our latest issue of dandyhorse, the bike plan election issue.
Training wheels in the skill zone.
Sunnyside Bike Park Now Open
By Sonya Allin
My four-year-old is still a little scared to get on a bike without training wheels. In an attempt to inspire and prepare her to go training-wheel “free”, Robin (my partner) and I have taken her to bike shows where she’s seen some of the GTA’s most talented young riders lift bike riding to an art. We’re also lucky in that our neighborhood has seen an increase in the number of public spaces, like the Wallace Emerson Bike Park, that are designed to promote cycling and encourage young cyclists to learn.
