Bike Tour: Tour of Toronto’s Separated Bike Lanes
Date: October 1, 2015
Time: 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Registration Limit: 20
Tour Leader: Jacquelyn Hayward Gulati, Manager, Cycling Infrastructure & Programs, Transportation Services, City of Toronto
In 2014 the City of Toronto installed separated bike lanes along Simcoe, Richmond and Adelaide Streets as a pilot project. These new lanes have dramatically increased, in some cases tripled, the number of cyclists using those routes without impeding car travel along the same stretches. In 2015 the City of Toronto approved the extension of the Richmond/Adelaide lanes to Parliament Street. This bike tour, led by Toronto’s Manager of Cycling Infrastructure & Programs, will tour these new lanes and discuss the benefits and challenges of this bikeway design.
