this is why I joined Cycle Toronto
A five year old cyclist died this week when he fell into traffic - this is why I joined a cyclists' advocacy group. The story is here. We need to do something about the lack of safe cycling in this city.
I joined Cycle Toronto when my wife was cycling on Kingston road near our home, and was clipped by a car. The driver either failed to notice, failed to control his car, or failed to care. The rear-view mirror of the car first clipped my three year old son's hand in his seat on the back of the bike. The driver then clipped Mari's handlebar. She retained control of the bike somehow, but it could have been bad.
