bike warrior

i’m looking forward to spring, but dreading the inevitable onslaught of bikes on Toronto sidewalks. i’ve never lived in a city with such impatient bikers (i ride a bike in Paris, but even notoriously rude Parisians are gems of patience & civility compared to Toronto bikers)

so how to resolve the cyclists vs pedestrians dilema–and both groups vs cars?  a beautifully-articulated NYTimes article by Robert Sullivan examines how we might all benefit from living more politely together.
