Jane’s Walk: How to make the Danforth a part of a cycling city

By , April 24, 2017 3:33 am

Ward 29 Bikes is hosting a bike-themed Jane’s Walk again this year. Join us at 11:30 am on Saturday May 6 inĀ Playter Gardens (northwest corner of Danforth & Cambridge, one block west of Broadview).

This walk starts on the Danforth and moves west to Sherbourne. Along the way, we will explore and discuss some of the challenges that cyclists face in commuting around the city and specifically around the Danforth. We will then continue the walk to the world of the possible. We will see some great examples of how Toronto is becoming a cycling city and we will discuss some of the exciting projects on the horizon and some of the community initiatives that really make biking in the city a pleasure. Throughout the walk consider:

  • How would the Danforth landscape change if it became more bike friendly? What would the impact be to the roads, the businesses, the environment?
  • What examples from around Toronto can be applied to improve biking on the Danforth?
  • How would increased cycling benefit Toronto? What is the best way to promote cycling?
  • How can we make roads that are effective for all modes of transportation: cars, bikes, pedestrians?

Watch for further updates and details on the event page at the Jane’s Walk website.
