As cycling gains popularity due to its cost-effectiveness, environmental benefits, and health advantages, Toronto has made progress in improving cycling infrastructure. However, this progress seems concentrated in the downtown core, leaving other areas like Scarborough behind. This past weekend, cyclists in Scarborough rallied to demand better bike lanes and infrastructure in their community.

The rally highlighted the need for equitable distribution of cycling infrastructure across the city. While downtown Toronto enjoys dedicated bike lanes and cyclist-friendly roads, Scarborough lacks safe cycling routes. To truly promote a healthy environment and sustainable transportation for all, the city must prioritize projects that cater to cyclists in underserved areas like Scarborough. Focusing solely on the downtown neglects the needs of residents in other neighborhoods who also deserve access to safe and convenient cycling options.
