Summer is finally here, and with it comes some great new stories from dandyhorse - and our new print issue is almost here! This month in the dandy blogosphere, Bike Month brought some exciting events. After two and a half years of construction, the City of Toronto held it's opening ceremony for the new Queen's Quay, giving cyclists more space and smoother, protected pavement. However in other parts of the city, bike lanes will temporarily be closed due to the Pan Am Games. Recent collisions causing the deaths of cyclists in the city has also called for a first ever die-in protest at City Hall, where riders laid on the pavement to urge city council to adopt a Vision Zero-type policy towards road fatalities. Bike Month also brought great events such as the Brick Works Family Bike Celebration at Evergreen Brickworks and the incredible and unique experiences such as meeting the aritst behind one of the Colnago Art Bikes at the AGO.
We also have some amazing new series' on the dandyBLOG: What's in your bike bag? and "Leaving the city" from our new guest blogger, Alix Aylen, who will be writing about her epic ride from Canada to Mexico, and talk about the accessibility of cities for cyclists.
The most exciting thing about the arrival of Summer? Our new issue of dandyhorse is almost here!
