New video shows the sad state of bike lanes in Toronto
Toronto is about to install a series of downtown bike lanes on streets like Adelaide and Richmond, which is great news for commuting cyclists. That said, cycling infrastructure is only safe and useful when it actually protects riders from vehicular traffic. Isn't that the whole point? Alas, not everyone thinks so, as this new video humorously shows off. It's an anecdotal take on the state of bike lanes in the city, to be sure, but most Toronto cyclists will find the various scenes of cars, buses, and other obstacles parked in the bike lane all too familiar.
