Bike Spotting: Should the Bloor Bike lane stay?

We asked riders at Bloor and Brunswick if they’d like to see the bikes lane on Bloor stay, and how it could be improved.

Richard

Of course! It's a lot safer, faster and more convenient than the TTC.  And there should be more of them.

Andy

Yes. It would be helpful if there were more physical barriers between the cars and the bikes.

 

Martin

Absolutely! Well I think it's fine but if it could be widened for sure.

 

Raajan and David

For sure! Raajan: It gets really rocky [in places] so paving can be improved.

 

Caroline

Definitely they should stay!  [Right now the bike lanes] only extend to Shaw and Avenue road and usually am cycling further than that - so if they can extend it, that would be great. [Ed's Note: Caroline was part of the Good Bike duo we shot for dandyhorse's famous Heels on Wheels series. Check out more about her bike-y goodness here.]
