Open house event at site of soon-to-be-built Sunnyside Bike Park
Media and members of the public are invited to an on-site "open house" to see concept drawings, provide input and ask questions about plans for a future Sunnyside Bike Park.
The City of Toronto has commissioned Jay Hoots, one of the most experienced bike park designers in North America, to design the bike park in Toronto's western beaches area. When built, Sunnyside Bike Park will run parallel to the north side of Lake Shore Boulevard, between Colborne Lodge Road and Ellis Avenue.
Date: Thursday, June 21

The City of Toronto has announced that it will undertake an Environmental Assessment over the underground section of the Eglinton Ave LRT, from Black Creek Drive to Brentcliffe Road. As you may already know, the proposed Eglinton Ave LRT route includes bike lanes on the surface section, but NOT the underground section. Now, the City will explore re-designing the street surface over the underground section.
In partnership with the Lakeshore Planning Council and the Toronto Cyclist Union, the South Etobicoke Cycling Committee will be holding a meeting on developing Heritage bike rides. We envision 90 minute bike rides led by local cycling enthusiasts with input by local historians. They will be like the Heritage Toronto walks, only on bike. Already the president of the Long Branch Historical Society has agreed to attend.
