Round Two in the Battle of Bike Lanes V Bakers

The proposal for a bi-directional bike lane on Harbord Street continues to generate controversy between cyclists and drivers in Harbord Village. The proposed lane running on the north side of the street only, between Ossington to Queen's Park Circle, will separate bike traffic from cars with a curb.

Last month, Harbord Bakery created a petition opposing the bike proposal stating that the bike lane would be dangerous for pedestrians, drivers and passing cyclists. Others disagree. Cycle Toronto, a cycle advocacy group, is strongly in favour of the proposal. The decision is set to be finalized in November but don't hold your breath. If you recall last year's removal of the Jarvis Street bike lane, we're in for an extended ride.
