Cycling on the streets of Toronto is fun, convenient, enjoyable and relatively safe, but it’s also a serious responsibility. You are traffic and you could be hurt or hurt someone else if you don’t take it seriously. Biking on Queen Street can be a challenge, but once you do it a few times you’ll see just how easy it is.
