Bike to work day

May 29 will be Toronto’s Bike to Work day. Take it from me, there’s no better way to feel like a mad (and healthy) anarchist than to take two wheels to work.

Despite a few quite notable shortcomings, Weston has a really blessed location for commuters up for a beautiful, if leisurely, ride. Wendell connects to bike paths heading north; the Humber River Trail carries hundreds of riders west and south every day. East and southeast are, I admit, a struggle–but I am quite convinced that demand creates its own supply: if we demand better connections to the city, we will get them.
