Toronto kicked off Bike Month with a big victory for cyclists. After a day-long debate, the Toronto City Council voted 28 to 18 in favour of including bike lanes and other sustainable transportation infrastructure into a major redesign project in the city’s downtown core. This was a huge victory for the Toronto Cyclists Union and Toronto cyclists who packed the seats and standing room of the Council Chambers. See www.bikeunion.to for more details.
