So far this new year we at dandyhorse have been working hard to bring you stories to help you bike safely and year-round in our fair city.

New dandyhorse Ryerson journalism school intern Taylor Moyle looked at Vision Zero Toronto, explored bike theft at GO stations and talked to the City of Toronto about their snow clearance successes and pitfalls.
  
We went to Kensington Market for a Bike Spotting session and asked year-round cyclists how they keep their bikes safe from theft. We did lots of DIY-Style international Bike Spotting interviews over the winter too, featuring many different people from all over the world. And we asked cyclists in Toronto what they think of the City's snow clearance effort in bike lanes this season. 

Taylor also looked at a TCAT event featuring newcomers to Canada who took pictures while exploring their new city by bike.

Associate dandy editor, Cayley James went to the Coldest Day of the Year Ride in Toronto. She also continued her Bikes on Reels series, where Monkey Warfare was reviewed.

Our editor in chief, Tammy Thorne caught up with #BathtubsofBunz viral internet sensation Ken Ferguson talking to him about taking a bath with his bike

We also talked to Toronto artist Julia Breckenreid, about bikes and art and her joining the new project Women Who Draw. Breckenreid produced this beautiful self-portrait above just for us at dandyhorse, too!

And, some of our favourite bike shops gave us tips on how to care for your bike - aka your beloved - during these messy months. 

Coming up: More from our fabulous archives as we continue to plan on our 'best of dandyhorse art' book; we'll be asking YOU what your favourite archive stories and images are. And, as always, we'll continue to keep our ears to the ground for news on new bike infrastructure for 2017. So far, it's looking like there will be pretty slim pickings as far as new bike lanes in Toronto go - but that won't stop you from riding, will it?
 
Ice bike race in photos
The Icycle bike race is a long-standing tradition in Toronto. It's history goes back to the Toronto Islands where it was once referred to as the St. Valentines Day Massacre. Check out some of our photos from the last 7 years.

 

Bike counts in the Bloor bike lane 
Chris Caputo and Albert Koehl looked at how many bike riders are out on the new Bloor bike lane. What they found may surprise you. (It surprised one Toronto Sun columnist.)
 
How has Toronto been at clearing the bike lanes this winter? 
This year Toronto committed to clearing certain bike lanes in Toronto. Ryerson journalism intern Taylor Moyle looked into how they've been doing and what bikers think of the new service.
