As a cyclist who regularly travels from west Hamilton to the east end, the lack of a direct and safe route makes my trips more nerve-wracking than they need to be. I often use Cannon as my route, but am not comfortable with the amount of traffic that comes in waves. I commute by bike daily to McMaster from Locke and Aberdeen. With the construction of the Studholme bike path, my commute has become much more safe and efficient. Whereas I used to take the bus two or three times a week, I now cycle year round and take the bus very rarely. Changing Cannon into a bike-friendly street would have a similar effect and create a bicycle-friendly corridor across the city.
Yes We Cannon is a citizen's group focused on creating a safe transportation route for cyclists along Cannon Street.

Cannon street slated for work - so let's make sure we get it right!
With the Pan Am Precinct revitalization plan, part of Cannon Street is already being considered for a redesign and roadwork. While the crews are there, we should make sure that we make Cannon work for all road users the entire length of Cannon - not just in one small section.
