This page serves as a portfolio of media coverage outside of the Two Wheeled Politics blog. Most of the articles listed are from Dandyhorse Magazine, which I am a regular contributor, but other media sources are also listed.

Your letters: Debating Yonge St. bike lanes (February 24, 2018) - Ahead of the February 27 Public Works meeting, I responded to a Toronto Star article which stated the Mayor's opposition to a plan which would lead to bike lanes on Yonge Street in North York.

Metro News

Bike-riding parking officer is still off Twitter - and off the job (November 6, 2017) - When Parking Enforcement Officer Kyle Ashley's Twitter account was shut down on November 3, 2017, several media outlets (including the Toronto Star and Blog TO) picked up my tweet calling for Kyle's reinstatement and calling on advocates to use the #BringBackKyle hashtag.

First Bloor, then Yonge: Toronto cyclists eye Yonge Street as next bike lane battleground (August 9, 2016) - To follow up on the momentum from the Bloor Loves Bikes campaign, I was interviewed by Luke Simcoe about my ride on Yonge Street in July 2016 from Queen's Quay to Steeles. It includes a section by section breakdown of that street and why bike lanes are needed.

CBC Toronto

'Livid' residents call for new Woodbine bike lanes to be removed (September 20, 2017) - Given local backlash over the newly installed bike lanes on Woodbine and a petition calling for their removal, CBC's Shannon Martin asked for some feedback from cyclists who use Woodbine. Councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon, cycling advocate Chris Drew, and I contributed quotes for this article. A link to a counter petition was also included.

Bloor West / Parkdale Villager
Toronto cycling advocates want Bloor bike lanes extended west (September 16, 2017) - Ahead of the "Bloor Bikes West" event on September 18, 2017 (link to Dandyhorse article), I was interviewed by the Bloor West Villager's Aaron D'Andrea with fellow advocates Helen Qu and Hyedie Hashimoto on why we support extending the Bloor bike lanes west.

Residents weigh in on Fort York bridge designs (June 3, 2015) - On June 2, 2015, I attended a consultation about the Fort York Pedestrian & Cycling Bridge. I was quoted by the Parkdale Villager's Hilary Caton about the bridge design. Some feedback fellow advocate Herb van den Dool and I provided at the event prompted the planners to include us for subsequent consultations to ensure the concerns of cyclists were addressed with the project.

GreenPAC

Jarvis to Bloor - A Cycling Advocate's Reflection (August 2, 2016) - GreenPAC is a non-partisan organization which promotes environmental leadership, including endorsing pro environment candidates for office.
