Toronto cycle lane twinned with Leyton

Exciting news. The London Borough of Waltham Forest's pioneering scheme of allowing cars to park in cycle lanes has now been applied with enormous success in Toronto:

There's a fresh new bike lane on Simcoe St. Just six months old, it was meant to calm the nerves of cyclists travelling the busy stretch under the GO lines and the Gardiner. Instead, it's a parking lot.

Just like on Leyton Green Road E10, part of the thrilling 'London Cycle Network'!
