Councilor Gord Perks, MPP Cheri DiNovo, MP Arif Virani, and Toronto Cycling Planner Christina Bouchard will be leading a discussion in Toronto's growing biking infrastructure and other ongoing campaigns. All your questions will be answered, and suggestions are always welcome.
Bloor Loves Bikes
We're all excited that this campaign is in the works! The proposal to run a pilot bike lane on Bloor from Shaw Street to St. George Street would make a tremendous difference, especially in a district that holds the highest percentage of bicyclists in the entire city.
You can sign the online petition for the lane on Cycle Toronto's website here or sign the petition in person at the meeting on Thursday.
Ten-Year Cycling Network Plan
Between 2016 and 2025, Transportation Services will be pushing for connectivity, network growth, and improving existing bike paths. The full plan is available here.
Cycle Toronto Ward 14 has made an east-west connectivity one of their top priorities, with focus on the lack of east-west options available west of the Railpath.
