Just a bit of catching up from the holidays... in case you missed any of these news items.

Best of 2006: bike lanes

Tammy Thorne of Spacing writes about the best bikelane of 2006. She makes a pretty strong case for the "Quay to the City" bikelane that was a pretty sweet tease for what is in store for cyclists on the Martin Goodman Trail along the waterfront. The other one mentioned was the new one on Sentinel up near York University, which I've personally used (it was nothing special), but when only 10 km of bikelanes are made, and only 3 km of which are on-street, you can't be choosy.

Bloor Viaduct needs brightening

"The Fixer" column in the Star addresses the poor lighting on the Viaduct that makes things extra dangerous for cyclists and pedestrians. Considering that coming off the Viaduct going eastbound approaching Broadview is one of those places where you have to essentially merge with fast car traffic to avoid hitting the on-ramp to the DVP, I'd say that lighting here would be very useful.

Toronto aims to lead the environmental pack
The mayor of Toronto wants Canada's largest city to rise above the rest of the country by becoming a global environmental leader.
If that isn't an open invitation for cyclist to push harder for infrastructure, political support, and more bike-commuters, then I don't know what is. :)
