Bicycling in Toronto 2004-2005 (PDF format)

ARC’s third annual “report card” on bicycling conditions and the City’s efforts to promote cycling. ARC grades the local government on it’s work in areas including street safety, deaths and injury, bicycle routes and leadership. The idea behind this report card is to inspire the city to improve their cycling activities, and to provide a historic record of the conditions cyclists face on a daily basis. The grades are also intended to provoke cyclists and government into thinking about what makes a good cycling environment.

Comparison of College and Pender Streets
A report comparing traffic conditions on College Street with Pender Street in Vancouver. Pender has a “floating” bike lane which means that for most of the day, motor vehicles are permitted to park in the lane and bicycles ride to the left of the parked cars. During rush hours, parking is forbidden and cyclists ride to the right of moving motor vehicle traffic. There is a proposal to replace the dedicated bicycle lane on College Street with a “floating” bike lane.
