New Initiatives for 2010 The City of Toronto is set to introduce the first Cycling Expressway (CE) in North America by completing a new world-class separated bike lane on the Gardiner.

Bike lane trading. The Bike Lane Infrastructure Swap System (BLISS) permits Toronto to buy credits from bike-friendly cities like Montreal & New York and count them against Toronto’s bike plan.

A Message From City Staff “The Toronto bike scam, I mean bike plan, is gonna prove that nobody is better at bike lanes. NOOOOBODY! You won’t believe all the bike stuff we’ll have in 10 years! (Hey, that oughta shut ‘em up for awhile.)” Mel Lastman - Former Mayor, 2001 Inaugural Speech "Well, we were well on our way to finishing up the lanes for this year, and then, you know, winter came and, you know, it started snowing... oh well there's always next year."   Darn Again Backpedalling Infra-structure

Another exciting new initiative will feature railings with foot rests along major bike routes throughout the city. These support railings will also include an official thank you message for being a cyclist in Toronto.

"I don't get what all the fuss is, I mean, I keep falling off whenever i get on one of those bike things.  I'm sick of falling off the damn thing. The city should encourage all drivers to install a rack on their roof though, 'cos let’s face it, cycling is great recreation!" Scary Welts Generally Managing 

"It's time to release the parking break and really put the pedal to the metal on the bike plan.  This time, we're going full throttle so buckle up and get ready for a turbo-charged ride! There are no more pit-stops or roadblocks and biking in T.O. will be driven home real soon." Dreamin' Heaps Cycling Advisory Committee
