New Paint on the Prince Edward (Bloor) Viaduct

Have you had a chance to go for a ride over the Bloor Viaduct yet this week?  Have you seen the new, wider bikes lanes and the sharrows at the conflict zones?

Over the past 2 years or so, Ward 29 Bikes, and the bike community, have been advocating for a safer crossing for cyclists along the busy Bloor/Danforth bridge. In 2008, Ward 29 Bikes released a detailed and persuasive report: The Bloor Viaduct Safety Report. Last week, the city started with the pre-stripping and by this week, the project was completed!

Take a look at new lines! The buffers! The sharrows!

Button Punching Party!

*** Due to unforeseen restrictions on the button-making equipment, we are forced to reschedule the party until Sunday, June 20. Sorry folks! But this gives you two more weeks to get that button-punching-arm in shape!***

100+ buttons are hot off the punch, and ready for the taking! But that’s only 1/10 of our supplies.

And you know what’s better than making 900 buttons by yourself? Making them with friends! So come to the Button Punching Party!!!

Sunday, June 20, 2010, 2-5pm @ BikeSauce (717 Queen E.)
