    Toronto Bike Share

    The very first time I used a Bixi I couldn't believe how heavy it was. Twice the weight of other bikes I rode in the past. I think it took two rides to get use to it. Perhaps they could be lighter. I dunno. I dunno if lighter bike share bikes used in Singapore could withstand a Canadian...

    Toronto | Queens Quay & Water's Edge Revitalization | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    I'm only aware of one pedestrian death caused by a bike in the last five years. However, to get a proper measure of risk, you'd have to divide the total number of pedestrian deaths (or injuries) caused by bikes divided by "total bikes hours" and compare that to the total number of pedestrian...
