The first week of construction of the Bloor bike lane has come to a close, and anyone who's ridden by the stretch it's been affecting knows how fantastic it's been coming along.

Here's a look at what the lanes look like so far:

Tuesday

Pre Paint Markings

Dotted lines marked over the spot where parking will be separated from the curb, leaving space for the lane.

Crews hard at work painting the lanes.  Fresh Painted Lines

Hopefully soon all these cyclists parked on the right will be able to safely get where they need to go (and hopefully the city will add more bike parking).

Wednesday

...while on the other the paint was already there, along with traffic. IMG_20160803_151346 IMG_20160803_150939

Without organizations such as Bells on Bloor, amongst others, these lanes wouldn't have been possible. IMG_20160804_125234
