Last year I scored 35% for my predictions.
Here are my predictions for 2008. Feel free to add yours to the comments.
1. There will be less than 15kms of bike lanes installed.
2. The Mayor will praise cycling during "Bike Month" but will ignore it for the rest of the year.
3. There will be an aberration in the average of number cyclists killed in Toronto. The crystal ball is not clear but let us hope that it means zero.
4. The new Bicycle Union will have a rough start but an event/incident will thrust it into the forefront sometime before the end of September. At which time it will prove it is a force to be reckoned with.
5. David Miller will cease being Mayor of Toronto.
6. Toronto, along with several other North American cities, will face a transportation crisis. There will not be enough mass transit available in face of a gas shortage.
7. An American will win the Tour de France. No one will really care much for the winner or the Tour.
8. A significant increase in the number of cyclists will be seen on Toronto roads. It will be hard to measure this one but a good indicator will be cyclists complaining about traffic jams. Not of cars but cyclists.
9. Toronto will face some of its worst ever smog days although the total number of smog days will be fewer.
10. The crystal ball still sees the demise of the Gardiner, especially the elevated section. The view is much clearer than last year.
