Thread: Downtown Yonge

    It's still there as far as I know.

    I did tweet this news about Sunrise Yonge & Dundas and their corporate account quickly responded that it wasn't true and that they are staying put. Not sure why it would be on a real-estate site though?!?

    Still there, although from a glance in the window it seems to be mostly t-shirts and tchotchkes.

    That's good. I have such a hard time finding a spot for my bike around Yonge and Dundas.

    I hate to sound so negative, but this is not nearly enough - I wouldn't even call this an effort. Plus, bike lock-ups are damaged (usually by vehicles hitting them) and then removed (as opposed to repaired) quicker than they are added. Until the city really gets serious about cycling & cyclists, I'm walking.
    Edit: Btw khristopher, the bike lockups attached to the light poles around HMV/Chipotle are often available, I don't think a lot of people really notice them.

    They are always taken when I look.

    I just had my wheels stolen off of my bike when I left it out last night on Church St. near Shuter. This is the second thing I've had stolen. My e-bike was stolen in the winter earlier this year as well.

    My bike was hit by a car and completely ruined 3 years ago when I parked it on the sidewalk on a residential street near Jarvis and Wellesley. The driver just left.
    I never bought another afterwards.
