Good news for cyclists – Ride The City & Google Bike Maps are in town!

This beautiful little Terrazza Bicycle Park, on the north side of Harbord Street near Roxton, is one more indicator that bicycling has “arrived” in Big TO.  Inner city folks love their two-wheelers, and will continue fighting for an expanded, safe bicycle path network.  Inroads are being made.

Two more positive indicators: Google now includes TORONTO and 8 other Canadian cities on its Google Bike Maps site.

And TORONTO is the latest addition – the first North American city outside the US – to appear on Ride The City.  Led by two former NYU planners, this site includes lists of bike stores, repair shops, safe and direct routes – even ways to steer around hills.
