Had anyone else had experiences lately with cyclist speeding through both the area stop signs and the lights at Fresh Co? I have been hit by a cyclist, so it may be some ptsd speaking, but the last few weeks I've actually had to stop and wait for cyclists to go through full stop areas instead of them stopping for me or my children.

I love cyclists and certainly want more opportunities for them to ride safely through the city, but is it too much to ask they follow the rules of the road like other responsible bike riders and car drivers?

Another day, another meeting. This affects the West Bend, but is just outside its borders at Dundas and Bloor. On Saturday, 14 October 2017, from 11:30am - 2:30pm (drop in) in the former Zellers building at 2280 Dundas Street W. City planners will be there, as well as Councillor Perks. This is the second "Open House" event.
Greetings, West Benders! Toronto's Public Works and Infrastructure Committee (PWIC) will be meeting this Wednesday to debate whether to keep the Bloor bike lanes, which will be followed by a City Council vote in early November.
Please e-mail PWIC (email@example.com), as well as copy Mayor John Tory (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Cycle Toronto (email@example.com), no later than Tuesday at 4:30 PM to support making the Bloor bike lanes permanent and extending them west towards High Park!
