Join me for a ride-along of some new-ish cycle tracks to imagine what it feels like to cycle comfortably on a busy road.
My second video is a narrated ride-along through Toronto’s first full protected intersection, which opened in Summer 2022.
Matt and Hans visit Ottawa’s revamped Scott Street and discuss the many changes they saw along their bike ride: the good things, but also the not so good things. With lots of photos of the new situation.
You may understand the benefits of a protected intersection, but how do you actually design one?
Ottawa’s Echo Drive is an unlikely candidate for “bicycle street” status. But despite its absence from official cycling routes, this street has much more in common with the “fietstraat” than you would expect.
E-bikes are exploding in popularity and promise access to a range of new users. It’s time we upgraded our trails to embrace these users, rather than shutting them out with regulations.
