Wood­bine Av­enue ‘bike At your leisure’

Metro Canada (Toronto) - - TORONTO - TorsTar news ser­vice

Toronto city coun­cil­lors Mary-Mar­garet McMa­hon, left, and Janet Davis cut the rib­bon and of­fi­cially open a new pro­tected bike lane on Wood­bine Av­enue on Satur­day. “Bike at your leisure, plea­sure, what­ever — just con­gest the hell out of that bike lane,” Coun. McMa­hon or­dered a horde of hel­meted rev­ellers crowd­ing the cor­ner of Wood­bine and Dan­forth for speeches and a ride with free gra­nola and lemon­ade at the end. The lanes were ap­proved by city coun­cil last Oc­to­ber as part of Toronto’s am­bi­tious 10-year cy­cling plan.
