bike die in city hall

This is what a bike die-in protest looks like in Toronto

A group of over 100 cyclists stage a dramatic protest this morning at city hall, as they collectively staged a die-in, playing dead in an attempt to shock the municipal government into better funding for cycling infrastructure and protection for riders.

The protest was spurred by the spat of recent cycling deaths in Toronto. The gathered cyclists urged the city to adopt a Zero Vision policy and to more than double the city's cycling budget. It was a spectacle, to be sure, one that was startling and visually impactful as those passing made their way to school and work.
