Three things I would do to make T.O. more bike-friendly
ADRIAN HEAPS, councillor and City Cycling Committee chair
“Cycling in Toronto needs to mature into a powerful, well-organized force to make it a major parallel transportation system and model for other cities.”
• We need bike storage stations to replace bike lockers, proper change rooms for employees to bring their bikes to work and a dedicated bike-share program.
“We can talk about all kinds of cycling improvements and additions, but the fact is that until we add bike lanes to our streets, we can’t start the conversation.”
• Everyone needs better driver education.
“We could certainly also benefit from increasing awareness on the part of some cyclists.”
• We need to corral the incredible enthusiasm, energy and concerns of the various advocacy organizations.
“There is unwarranted resistance to cycling initiatives.”
