#MinimumGrid petition wants Toronto to up its bike lane game
The petition has already surpassed its minimum 5000 signee goal.

Not content with Toronto’s current cycling infrastructure, Cycle Toronto has launched an online petition ahead of the city’s October 27th municipal election to try and ensure biking stays on city hall’s agenda. 

“Let’s demand all candidates commit to creating a minimum grid of 100 km of protected bike lanes and 100 km of bicycle boulevards by 2018 to get Torontonians moving by bicycle,” says the petition on community driven website Avaaz.

The group adds on their own website, “73% of Torontonians say the lack of cycling infrastructure in this city is holding them back from riding more. We wouldn’t build a power grid without a networked system, and transportation infrastructure is no different.”

As of the writing of this article, 5021 people have signed the petition, surpassing its modest 5000 signee goal.

Those interested in checking out the petition can do so here.
