From Dr. Corey Bricks:
The main way I positively contribute to planetary health is during my commute to work. I am an all-season cyclist and a few extra layers, occasional frozen tears from the wind and some determination are all that is required to survive most of Toronto’s coldest days. With that in mind, safety is important, and while I am so happy that the biking infrastructure in Toronto has improved over the last several years, biking in the city is not without its hazards. In particular after a snowfall, many of the bike lanes become too treacherous, and on those days, you’ll find me on the TTC. Outside of Toronto, cycling is also my preferred way to explore a new place. It’s a fun way to visit somewhere new and you can cover so much more distance than walking, plus get way more fresh air and exercise than being confined to a car.
