70% walking, 20% standing around trying to figure out where you're going and 10% rolling at a snails pace. By the end your heart is ready to explode into cardiac arrest from all the abuse and is audible from 20 feet away.

Questionable? Not really. I've biked through Rexdale in the past many times, you're probably fine. The GTA isn't exactly Baltimore

I'd take the long route anyway, the one you have highlighted in blue there. The lakefront trail is really nice

Feel free to ask me anything about biking in Toronto, I've been doing it for years and its cool to see someone else on 4chan doing the same thing

What city in the USA has the best public transit? Here in DC its ok but its really hard to hold the transit authority accountable because they're actually funded by 3 states (Virginia, Maryland and DC itself)

It's miles ahead of back home in panhandle Florida though, where people start foaming at the mouth and screaming SOCIALISM at the thought of organizing a need we all have like moving the fuck around.

Las Vegas actually has a decent bus network in terms of frequency, and has 24/7 service on quite a few routes.
But the city's layout is not conducive to encouraging transport use, and the weather is also a big obstacle (no one wants to wait for a bus in 115 degree heat).

probably nyc. only place i can think where the majority don't own a car. even in cities with "good" transit you still get discriminated against for jobs for not having a cage even if it's a fucking office job (had TWO gen X fuckers lose their minds and refuse me the job when I said I don't own a car and don't want one. For office jobs. That I was literally sitting in at that moment and could obviously get to.)
the best metric is honestly whether the average normie does or does not own a car.

I thought SF was good. Never waited more than 5-10 minutes for a bus. Here (Denver) every morning I had to wait 20 minutes for a connection, mid day waits are 50+minutes because they drop frequencies (these are major lines, not some suburb bus route), have regularly waited over one hour for a light rail. rtd is the shittiest system I've ever seen in my entire life. still waiting for my lease to run out and I can escape this shithole. It takes literally 3 hours to get 15 miles by transit here. colorado talks all this shit about how civilized and progressive they are but they're just texas light. the transit is so poorly organized I'd like to storm rtd's office and christchurch it.

The buses are pretty decent. Even my (literal) boomer conservative dad likes the bus service and uses it to avoid driving his barely mobile car. But he's the kind of person that enjoys shooting the shit with the random dregs of society that also use it.

Why not signal when there is turn and i am going to take it? Why not let the cars all around you know what you are going to do? As someone else said its like cars indicators and they work cause when you turn you slow down and maybe you even have to wait some traffic before crossing for your turn. So its not meme at all and i do it all the time when i think it is necessary.

Wear a helmet. Take out your headphones. Always ride alert. Dont ride on streets higher than 40 mph speed limit. Buy a rear bike blinker and keep it flashing when on road.

Any of you ever make fictional transit maps? I'm currently working on a map of the Northeast US in an alternate reality where passenger rail was supported in the same way it was in the UK in our timeline, with most of the lines traced over current and former rights of way. Clearly (since there are orphaned stations all over the Virginias, and a multitude of missing stations in New York and Pennsylvania) it's a long way from being done.

It's not just that, it also connects suburbs without having to go through Boston, although the option is there, and probably much more frequent in service.
>T service is a joke
It ain't no Britbong Network Rail, but the Northeast commuter systems are better than just Amtrak, or nothing, which is what a lot of the largest cities in America have.

Truth, it's also being systematically sabotaged whenever the Madrid regional govt. which is responsible for the Metro has a different party ruling than the city.

It comes off the mainline near Industrial Bypass and Main St. It goes north next to Moonlight Rd., then hickies over after Prairie Village Drive. Turns back north at New Century Parkway, and dribbles off after 159th St. A tiny remnant of the spur that went to the main hangar area of the NAS is still there. Just west of that is where you can see OP's pic related parked. There's a tiny yard.

Back by popular demand, ITT we discuss the greatest electrified railroad operation in world history. The proven corporate conspiracy to dismantle and abandon this operation, largely perpetrated from within the company itself by its own top-level officials, is one of the greatest crimes against humanity ever conceived and makes the Great American Streetcar Scandal look like amateurish in comparison.

Gone before its time, but not forgotten, the Milwaukee Road's Pacific Coast Extension lives on in the minds of all who encounter it. This thread is dedicated to the men and women who built and maintained this system, and the photographers who filmed and preserved this unique operation for posterity.

Man I'd hate to be an incel's dad. Sorry for your lot m8.

The jet was apparently taking of from Schonefeld after some type of maintenance. A "technical malfunction" occurred shortly after takeoff, and the Luftwaffe crew were returning. From the looks of the photos, the jet rolled from about 35° left to about 35° right in only a few seconds. The balls on this guy!

>This morning around 09:00 (UTC +2), a
Bombardier Global 5000 of the Luftwaffe (German Air Force) departed Berlin Schönefeld Airport (SXF) but was forced to return after a technical issue. After landing, however, the aircraft ended up slightly next to the runway, blocking the runway. Departures have been halted. At the moment of writing, eight aircraft diverted to nearby Tegel Airport, seriously disrupting the airlines’ flight schedules.

>The German Air Force announced that no passengers were on board the aircraft: “The crew is being medically examined. The aircraft headed back to Berlin Schönefeld after a technical malfunction just after take-off. We are investigating the cause of the incident,” the German Air Force tweeted.

>(*) the belated aircraft appears to be a German Air Force Bombardier Global 5000, registered 14+01

What kinds of pedals do you guys like? Single sided? Double sided? Platform? Lots of float? No float? Anything you particularly hate? Fear?

Personally I hate straps and toe cages. I used them for years because I was too much of a pussy to try real pedals. Thinking back about all those wasted miles on substandard equipment is mildly upsetting.
