Bike Lanes for Cannon Street by 2015? Yes We Cannon!


Statement by Justine Lodder

Hey I lived in Toronto for a year and biked ALL the time. Felt unsafe on the roads there only once in a while, even in heavy traffic and snowy weather. Maybe that's because drivers in Toronto are much more accustomed to sharing the road with assertive bikers. There's just not as much space on Hamilton roads to share, and drivers can't share as easily while navigating one-way streets and other distractions as well. NOT that Hamilton needs to be more like Toronto, but if a congested city like Toronto can be working toward bike-friendly roadways, then a beautiful city like Hamilton has no excuse for sidelining bikes. With the addition of designated bike lanes on Cannon, Hamilton would be so much more accessible by bike. Let's do this!
