'If you haven't been through the railway underpass next to the Dundas St. West and Dupont St. intersection in West Toronto recently, you have been missing out on some incredible changes! The streetscape has evolved tremendously in the past couple of months: The West Toronto Railpath linear park and trail is now open, there are bicycle lanes on Dupont St., and a brand new mural dedicated to bicycle culture has been painted along the entire 400 foot south wall.'
'The mural, titled Strength in Numbers, was installed by a group of artists from Art Starts, an organization that helps build Toronto communities by using the arts. Funding for these murals came from the City of Toronto's Graffiti Transformation Investment Program, as well as the Toronto Arts Council and Ontario Arts Council. Lead artists Joshua Barndt and Jamie Bradbury, along with five youth artists painted the murals over four weeks in July and August 2009.'

'The Bike Doctor regularly visits London's City Hall. Employees can book in their bikes for free checkups, service and repairs - all they pay for is the parts. Their bikes are ready for them at the end of the day. The employer pays for the Bike Doctor's time, and the scheme encourages employees to cycle to work. And the Bike Doctor, of course, gets there by bike, whose huge cargo box carries a full complement of tools and parts.'

'A new Cycle Hire scheme is due to be introduced to central London in summer 2010, similar to the successful Vélib scheme in Paris.'
Approximate numbers for the planned launch will include:
400 cycle stations
10,200 docking points (allowing approximately 1.7 per cycle should ensure users can return bicycles to the docking point of their choice)
An area of approximately 44km2
Whether you are a commuter, shopper, local resident, business traveller, leisure user or a visitor to London, the Cycle Hire scheme offers greater choice of transport as well as being an environmentally friendly and healthy way to travel. '
