Toronto giving parking spots to cyclists

The City of Toronto is running a pilot project right now, replacing downtown roadside parking spots with bicycle racks. It's a small pilot project (two spots on Spadina Avenue), but a good idea: The racks will be removed in the winter, freeing those spots back up for parking when the weather's at its worst.

From the Toronto Star:
As part of a city pilot project, two on-street car parking spots along Spadina have been converted into a small bike parking lot with two racks, each with eight spaces.
Sensible, too: The space which two cars would otherwise have occupied, 16 bicycles can now park in.
