Just in time for Toronto Bike Month, a group of cyclists will gather to inaugurate the first section of new cycling road infra-structure to hit Toronto streets this year. The new sharrows on Hallam Street stretching from Dufferin to Ossington are part of the Toronto Bike Plan. Sharrows are commonly used where roads are not wide enough for bike lanes. The distinctive markings remind drivers to share the road with cyclists and are a key component in traffic calming.

“The new sharrows look great’ says Wendy Lucas. ‘Much more bike-friendly. They are a great addition to the road and a long time coming.’ –

The top picture shows the city’s type, the bottom is a guerrilla farrow (Urban Repair Squad?), which I like more.
