It's that time of year again folks: Time to light up! (And layer up.) Now’s the time to don your cardigan, grab those warm beverages and take a stroll or roll through the park kicking up leaves because: AUTUMN IS HERE. With crisper days come longer, often drizzly, nights with roads lined with slick leaves. In these conditions there is an even higher chance of taking a header off your bike or skidding out of control. So heed our advice (AKA common sense) and it’ll be smooth sailing all season. Head over to the blog to pick up some tips and share your own in the comments. Don't fail at fall!

Since we released the most recent issue of dandyhorse this summer there has been a whirlwind of activity at You can also read up on Montreal bike activism in Albert Koehl's heartwarming profile of Bicycle Bob or catch up on some urban planning news out of city hall here. We have also launched a new monthly series: Bikes on Reels that looks at the way bikes are used in cinema. We published a couple more stories from our summer print issue too, including our fab and feisty feature on C.U.N.T., Toronto's first feminist bike zine.

We also caused some waves with our feature on sexism in bike shops. There was a shorter piece on the same topic in NOW magazine and the CBC and The Star both had stories on the topic. That's dandyhorse: Making positive change, one bike-y rant at a time!

(Sc)roll on over to to stay in the bike loop.


Have you been keeping up with Peter Harte's commutes around Toronto? Over the past two months this intrepid city cyclist has journeyed from east to west and back again and taken us along for the ride. He uncovers hidden gems, the best bike lanes, smoothest pavement, and where the city needs to pick up the slack. The series is almost over! So get reading.


Last month we went east - way east - to check out the bike scene in Newfoundland where we found a burgeoning bike culture in what must be Canada's hilliest city (and also the oldest, apparently!)
Meet some of St. John's best cycling advocates in our story here. And check out our dandy archive about the St. John's advocacy group Ordinary Spokes here.

We informed readers that the Tour de France is in France... not on Bloor in this piece. We also explained why bike lanes are more popular than ever in Toronto. And we covered the Bells on Bloor "victory lap" of the new bike lane here and here.
