Today was another Open Streets TO event, where sections of Bloor and Yonge were closed to car traffic. This is the second year for this event. Here at Bloor and Spadina, we meet up right away with Stuart and Magda who own two cargobikes, including a red Haul a Day.
Stuart’s Haul a Day was brand new and I noticed that his kickstand had a little bumper that kept it from clanking when you swing it up.
He also added these little bumpers on the end of the frame so that it wouldn’t get scratched when he stands the bike on end.
I also took a spin on their Pedego Stretch, and I could see how having e-assist could get addictive.
This cool Bullitt was also parked nearby.
Much less crowded than last year:
However, last year, this wasn’t there.

As 1 pm rolled around, it was time to bring the car-free-dom to an end.
There will be another Open Streets TO event on September 6. Perhaps we’ll see you there!
