City Cycling Petition
We, the undersigned request that Toronto City Council take action on the following items to make cycling in Toronto safer, and thus encourage more people to ride bicycles and relieve congestion:
1. Connect the Simcoe Street bicycle lanes to the St George Beverley Street bicycle lanes via John street and Richmond street west so there is a continuous north-south bicycle lane route west of the core connecting Bloor Street to the Lake,
2. Separate the Simcoe Street bicycle lanes from traffic between Front Street West and Queens Quay by bollards and or curbs,
3. Complete and separate the Wellesley/Harbord bicycle lanes system and end the gaps in the system at Queens Park and on Harbord.
4. lnstall separated bicycle lanes on either Richmond and/or Adelaide connecting Sherbourne Street and Bathurst,
5. Ensure that the first phase of the Queen's Quay Pedestrian Promenade terminates at Bay Street and not York Street as it is currently intended.
