Some great bike stuff happening in wards 18 and 19
Just want to share a few bike posts for ward 18 and 19:
Ward 18 - Also, I was at the Junction Triangle Traffic Management Plan proposal meeting the other night and since they are looking at using one way streets for traffic control, the group was quite anxious to look at how they could incorporate contra flow bike lanes too. After all, they want to discourage non local automobile traffic - not cyclists! Councillor Ana Bailao was very supportive.
Ward 19 - I attended the Shaw St - Contra flow Public Open House. It was a great opportunity to learn more about contra flow lanes, how they help with the flow of cyclists and make Toronto more bikeable (not a word, but should be).
It was inspiring to learn about all the great things that are underway, so I wrote a blog post:http://torontorealestateblog.com/how-important-are-toronto-bike-lanes-wh... and posted all the pictures in a gallery: http://torontorealestateblog.com/shaw-street-bikeway-public-open-house-g... if anyone is interested.
