Back in January 2016, Cycle Toronto’s Ward 18 group hosted their successful "Bike Lanes Mean Business" event, which presented the economic benefits of cycling to a packed house at Ciro’s near Bloor and Lansdowne. It even prompted the Danforth Loves Bikes campaign to copy-and-paste the event in April 2016 for an east-end perspective. With the fate of the Bloor bike lanes to be decided at the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee (PWIC) and City Council this fall, the Ward 18 and Ward 14 groups have teamed up for a follow-up act called Bloor Bikes WEST!
Bloor Bikes West will be held on Monday, September 18, 2017, at 7:00 p.m. at Ciro’s at 1316 Bloor St. West, with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Councillors Mike Layton and Ana Bailao will be speaking about the existing Bloor pilot project and the importance of extending it west. Community members will be able to provide their feedback on what they would like to see included in the westward extension, including identifying areas of concern. Refreshments will be provided.
