INVITE YOUR COUNCILLOR TO RIDE WITH US ON MAY 11 – AND TO TAKE ACTION ON SAFER ROADS

Prior to Saturday’s ride, please let your councillor know that you want better safety for cyclists,
and bike lanes on Bloor-Danforth.

Toronto actually has fewer kilometres of bike lanes (but more cyclists) than two years ago.
That’s embarrassing compared to other Canadian cities like Montreal and Vancouver.

Twenty years ago, Bloor-Danforth was identified by a report for City Council as an ideal east-
west route that could form the spine of the city’s bike network. We’re still waiting.
