Prior to Saturday’s ride let your councillor know that you want bike lanes on Bloor.
Toronto has fewer kilometres of bike lanes (but more cyclists) than two years ago! That’s embarrassing for Toronto and it’s less than is being done in Montreal, Vancouver and other cities around the world.
Twenty years ago Bloor-Danforth was identified by a City report as an ideal east-west route that could form the spine of the city’s bike network. We’re still waiting.
Here are the emails for Bloor councillors, moving east to west:
Councillor_Vaughan@Toronto.ca (Adam Vaughan: Ward 20)
Avenue Rd to Bathurst, and the north side of Bloor from Bathurst to Christie
Councillor_Layton@Toronto.ca (Mike Layton: Ward 19)
Bloor south side from Bathurst to Christie, then all of Bloor to Dovercourt
Councillor_Bailao@Toronto.ca (Ana Bailao: Ward 18)
Dovercourt to tracks before Roncesvalles
Councillor_Perks@Toronto.ca (Gord Perks: Ward 14)
Tracks near Roncesvalles to Keele
Councillor_Doucette@Toronto.ca (Sarah Doucette: Ward 13)
