Summer nights can be the coolest time to ride your bicycle,

Todays cool Friday Flickr Faves comes from photographer TrueLove! Fabiola Fanego.
Azul, first freedomAzul, first freedomAzul, first freedom


Keep safe, enjoy the summer city nights.

The snow is coming.

Q: Do you ride at night?

A: I love riding at night. Toronto streets at night empty out during the weeknights and
can make for a calm traffic reduced ride.
With the sun staying out later it makes it easy to find your way to a new cafe
or restaurant patio to enjoy new sights sounds and tastes. Don't forget your lights.

THE TTC CONNECTION

IMG_9728
I've always said to tourists and even citizens in Toronto that you've never really ridden the streets of Toronto

until you've had a TTC Streetcar breathing down the nape of your neck as you try

and navigate the narrow gaps of potholes trash and door prizes of Toronto's bike lanes

or lack thereof.







Swimming with the Sharks as some may say? Or as the video above, "Senza Paura" = "No Fear"


College & Carlton, Dundas St. Queen St. , King St. and to the north, St Clair west, are main core roads that intersect the city centre.

And all of them have street car tracks.

Seasoned veterans of the streets can attest to the electrically charged adrenaline rush of

when you are being slowly chased by a rumbling road and metal wheels,

mere inches from your pedals.


BAG IT

Q: How does riding with the streetcar make you feel?



A: I've always had a mild relationship with the streetcars,

It's the streetcar tracks that i've had to breakup with on a few occasions.

I have to admit that crossing streetcar tracks at weird angles can cause bodily harm.

But so can my stupidity.

I love it when people on the Streetcar say hello as they roll past,

or give you the finger when you breeze by them stuck in traffic.

BAY ST AND BANKERS

IMG_1120
The Financial District of Toronto sits in the middle of the downtown core and is divided by a few east west arteries that support the city cyclist and urban commuter.

You'll see anything from suits to speeding couriers to the good old shade wearing citizen.

Now that a Bixi stand is located at Bay and King streets you'll eventually see bankers via Bixi.
