Huge Ass Bike Billboards Hated by Torontoist


Reacting to a Cyclemedia press release which read, in part, "These billboards are impossible to miss and are fully interactive! Get ready for in your face advertising that literally screams from the streets of Toronto," Torontoist wondered, as we do, what the hell is interactive about a bike billboard. Oh, yea, as Torontoist says, it's the eggs that will be thrown at the poor billboard cyclist as he tries to weave his way in and out of pedestrian and automotive traffic on the narrow streets of Toronto.

I've lived in Toronto most of my life and have never been referred to as, or heard anyone refer to another as a Torontoist...Torontonian is what we say eh...

Are you guys nuts? The Torontoist is a website, not a person. Like chigacoist, laist, gotamist, shanghaiist, londonist, phillyist, DCist, austinist,'s an entire network of weblogs, each one covering a specific city.
