This Jane Walk starts on the Danforth and moves west to Sherbourne. Along the way, we will explore and discuss some of the challenges that cyclists face in commuting around the city and specifically around the Danforth. We will then continue the walk to the world of the possible. We will see some great examples of how Toronto is becoming a cycling city and we will discuss some of the exciting projects on the horizon and some of the community initiatives that really make biking in the city a pleasure. Throughout the walk consider: - How would the Danforth landscape change if it became more bike friendly? What would the impact be to the roads, the businesses, the environment? - What examples from around Toronto can be applied to improve biking on the Danforth? - How would increased cycling benefit Toronto? What is the best way to promote cycling? - How can we make roads that are effective for all modes of transportation: cars, bikes, pedestrians?.

The walk is hosted by Ward 29 Bikes. We are an open group of local volunteers advocating safe and sound youth and adult cycling in and around Ward 29 Toronto-Danforth.
