Image of mayoral candidates profiled by dandyhorse for the municipal election.

Well dandies, it's been a long campaign and a busy fall season, but the election is finally upon us. If you're still trying to make up your mind about which mayoral candidate is right for you (in terms of bike policy), you can check out our handy dandy candidate profiles. Just be sure to get out there and vote!

This month we welcomed new dandies Jeff Carson and Corey Horowitz, who wrote about riding in the Don trails and the seventh annual Complete Streets forum respectively. We also went Bike Spotting on King asking cyclists if it's time for a transit mall on North America's busiest surface public transit route. Meanwhile news about the Pan Am Path suggests it could start filling in the gaps in Toronto's trail and cycling infrastructure. Our managing web editor Jenna Campbell continued to explore the city's bike lanes as a new cyclist on Harbord and Shaw streets. And ward 20 council candidate Albert Koehl wondered if we are placing more importance on parking spots than on pedestrian and cyclist safety. And lots more has been happening on the dandyBLOG.

UPCOMING: The Toronto Bicycle Awards are on November 13 and nominations are open until October 30.

Stay tuned to dandyhorse as we cover the inevitable changes at city council and share how we prepare our bikes for the winter season.
A transit mall on King

Biking for the cause

We biked on the Reading Line and we biked to Save the Arctic. But the best cause to bike for is because you like it.

And here are our Bikestock photos and Tweed Ride photos, in case you missed them.

Q&A with ward 20 city council candidate Albert Koehl

We interviewed Koehl and asked what he would do for the people of ward 20 if elected. The story also includes a backgrounder on a transit right-of-way for King.
Don't vote for a clown
There are a few clowns in mayoral race this year, but this one is more serious about bike safety than you might expect. That doesn't mean he wants your vote though.
