Jarvis Bike Lane Protest

Photos of the Jarvis bike lanes protest ride

About 1000 cyclists made their way through downtown Toronto streets on their way to City Hall to protest the recent City Council vote to remove bike lanes on Jarvis Street. Leaving from Allan Gardens at around 6:30 p.m., the ride proved a temporary pain for vehicular traffic as the relatively slow-moving cyclists tied up intersections along the route, but the two-wheeled "protestors" made sure that the delays remained minimal. It was, however, a pretty vocal group. Not only could bike bells be heard throughout the ride, but upon arrival at City Hall, the cyclists repeatedly chanted, "We just want to share!"
