Tickets, sidewalk biking, unicycles, escooters at Toronto Bike Show
I attended the Toronto International Bike Show this weekend and
learned that sidewalk bicycling in Toronto is legal as long as the
bike's wheels are 24" or less, according to a brochure by the Advocacy
for Respect for Cyclists ("ARC"). Other biking groups that have
similar helpful information in Toronto are: The Community Bicycle
Network (www.onelesscar.ca), Bikeshare (www.bikeshare.org),
Hideouswhitenoise which publishes The Humanpowered Magazine
(www.hedeouswhitenoise.com), Critical Mass (group rides every last
Friday of the month, tel. 416-539-7007), Toronto Bicycle Network
There was a unicycle group showing off at the show.
The "Nolet" 3-wheeled, cargo electric scooters were displayed at
several booths at the Toronto Bike Show 2002. The Nolet
(www.electric-scooter.com) electric scooter brochure states that it
uses "Orbital" brand advanced batteries, with a range of 60 km, or 40
miles, at 18 km/hr. This electric machine seems to be an ideal
electric vehicle for ferrying newspaper or pizza deliveries. And since
the wheels are less than 24 inches, imho, it doesn't seem to offend
the sidewalk bicycling by-law in Toronto.
According to brochures by serious bike-building hobbyists, the 28th
annual International Human Powered Speed Championships will be held in
Brantford, Ontario between August 5th-10th, 2002. (www.ihpva.org)

I'm sorry, I fail to see the point of this post. Did you get a ticket riding a 26"? Would you like to elaborate on the unicycling stuff that was there, or do you feel that one sentance about it is sufficient for us uni-hungry individuals? Personally I would rather have heard more about how the bikers reacted to the Unis as opposed to hearing about some electric THREE wheeled scooter, unless the three wheels are stacked one on top of each other (which they aren't). This post was not meant to nag, but rather to ask WHY ARE YOU POSTING THAT NON-UNI DRIBBLE HERE!? Sorry, I must learn to control my road rage on the internet super highway.

That's handy information. Now to get picky, that '24" or less',
is that rim size or rim plus tire size combined? or do they not

That would have been the Toronto Unicyclists.
