    Nifty T-intersection Redesign Slows Down Traffic

    Reading Time: 4 minutes I saw an interesting road modification on T-intersections in the Netherlands to slow traffic down. It looks simple to implement, there is no need for signs and it doesn’t appear to cost much.

    A 30 km loop in Orléans (Ontario)

    Reading Time: 6 minutes Early September, Karen and I finally made it to Orléans (in Ontario). We cycled a 30 km loop with a short 5 km side tour to Petrie Island, mostly on pathways, and a bit on residential roads. Orléans could use more cycling infrastructure though as there are missing links. Hopefully with the arrival of LRT more cycling infrastructure will be added.

Reading Time: 4 minutes A bidirectional bike lane on Colonel By at Wellington St would be a welcome solution to an annoying missing cycling link. It is only 200 meters and it should be easy to implement.
