Update 1:59 p.m.: The Bike Bloc protest is now headed down Bay Street, passing St. Joseph. Still noisy, but no confrontations with police.
I'm following the Bike Bloc demonstration that started at Bloor and Spadina. It got off to a rocky start, heading south on Spadina until police turned the bikes back, their riders chanting "Let us bike" and "Whose streets? Our Streets!"
The protesters were then allowed to head east along a side street. The procession of hundreds of cyclists is now headed east on Cumberland, and is very noisy.
