    Cycling: West Toronto Railpath (City of Toronto, Phase II Proposed)

    Seen today by the Wallace bridge. Not my tag, but I certainly share the sentiment. A year and four months now that the railpath has been bifurcated/closed:

    Farm Boy expansion in the GTA

    That segment of Dupont is also so hostile to pedestrians. I inquired with 311 about ~5 months ago as to when the traffic light in front of Farm Boy would be activated and no response yet. Really unpleasant to jaywalk around there!

    Toronto LNX Residences at Bloor and Dundas | 87.5m | 27s | Lormel Homes | Richmond Architects

    Why is the sidewalk in front of this brand spankin' new condo so pitifully shoddy? I'm talking about the uneven and mixed surfaces. Is it something they'll do over or is it just gonna...stay like that? It gives a bad impression.

    Cycling: West Toronto Railpath (City of Toronto, Phase II Proposed)

    Photo of progress taken from the Wallace foot bridge this past Friday. Anyone know if they're on track (heh) to reopen the full path soon? The original detour signage said "about a year" from November 5 of 2022. I miss having a reliable flat walking path in winter!

    Downtown Grocery Store List (current + proposed)

    Walked by today and this looks close to being ready! There are shelves inside, exterior is painted and the signage is up. Can't wait to have one closer to me so I can blow my whole paycheque on fizzy drinks and prepared foods. Summerhill Market @ 3609 Dundas Street W just west of Jane.

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    Does anyone have insight into the College Street bike lanes/improvements around Bathurst? Every time I've walked by in recent months they looked like an abandoned construction project, but tonight around 5pm I saw TEN construction workers (one of them was doing work, the other nine were...

    Downtown Grocery Store List (current + proposed)

    For me personally Eataly has become my go-to spot before a movie at Cineplex Varsity. If I'm with a group it's ideal because there's variety and we can all get whatever we want to eat; no group bills to deal with. I'm sure other people are doing the same! I'm desperate for an Adonis in the...

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    A great recap of the unveiling of the Bloor West bike extension/group ride this morning. And a reminder to email councillors Morley & Perks with words of support for the extension to counteract the angry minority. I'm on the BWV side of the bike lanes and my NextDoor feed is teeming with angry...

    Toronto Junction House | 40.23m | 9s | Slate | superkül

    Small update. I was pretty excited to be able to walk on the sidewalk and not the road for the first time in maybe 2 or 3 years? Felt nice!

    Toronto Bike Share

    They need to start using very specific examples like this in their marketing to be cheeky. "Carrying home groceries? Our bike baskets perfectly fit a 10 lb bag of potatoes!"

    Toronto GO Transit: Davenport Diamond Grade Separation | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    It's really deplorable. The 3 year anniversary of the Bloor bike lane extension is this week and that segment between Dundas and Lansdowne has been perpetually ripped up, under construction and detoured the whole time. Every time I think, "OK, NOW they're going to paint lines and put in proper...

    Cycling: West Toronto Railpath (City of Toronto, Phase II Proposed)

    It's been that way since November 2022, and I believe it was meant to last "approximately 1 year" in total (but who knows). It's super annoying, because it has essentially bifurcated the already too short Railpath into two segments - Railpath north of Bloor, and Railpath south of Bloor, since...

    Bloordale Village

    Looks good! I walked by today and snapped a pic; looking forward to checking Solkatt out ASAP.

    The Junction

    New UK grocery shop "From There To Here" at the eastern foot of St. John's Road (17 St. John's Road at Clendenan). Terrible SEO and no social media or web presence so you'll just have to take my word for it. They've taken over the inventory and suppliers of the recently closed Flowers & More...

    Love it, the fully orange bikes are very striking! Here's how the new Tangerine branded eBike looks:

    Shabby Public Realm

    On the topic of shabby/unfinished looking TTC properties, what on earth is happening at Islington station? It's utterly depressing! It's got that neglected soviet vibe...can't imagine the air quality is very good down here either with these weeping/peeling walls. And why does the ceiling look...

    Cycling: West Toronto Railpath (City of Toronto, Phase II Proposed)

    I'm already lamenting the loss of one of the only continuous, routinely snow plowed walking/running routes in the west end with the closure of the Bloor segment since January (more easily navigable on foot via the GO station, but crossing Bloor there is nigh on impossible) but does anyone have...

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    Sidewalk width is such an ongoing battle - on Dundas West where it goes NORTH of Bloor (parallel to the Go/UP tracks) the eastern sidewalk is a year-round struggle. When it snows, it's not plowed, and the rest of the year whatever the bushes are (weeds? I honestly don't know) encroach in a major...

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    Agreed. We need to clone her about 100x to deal with the rampant "I'll just be a minute..." type infractions, plus the increasing number of vehicles that park entirely on the sidewalk whenever they please!

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    Yup, Montreal immediately shuts down all of Toronto's tired excuses of "it's too cold / there's too much snow / it's too hilly" to create and maintain cycling infrastructure. They also crush our daily numbers with Bixi according to the BikeShare bot accounts (Montreal vs Toronto) - 50K trips per...
