Bicycles in Toronto

Torontonians love bicycles.  If you live downtown Toronto, you will see bikes are parked everywhere on the sidewalk.  Some streets, like lower Spadina, you can see hundreds of bikes locked next to each other.  We also have dedicated bike lanes on some streets, which provides safer routes for cyclists.  Too bad there aren't enough bike lanes.  

Some of us bike to walk all year round, even in the winter with windchill at -20c, or in the snow.   Some think we are crazy, but it's not as bad as they think, as long as you dress for it.  The benefits are obvious: good exercise, save money, and reduced carbon footprint.
