Cannon Street is one of the most dangerous streets I have ever ridden my bike on. I lived on Victoria Avenue during my last semester at McMaster, and found it frustrating to have to take the slower side roads because vehicular traffic was given priority on all the main thoroughfares.
Cannon, Main Street, and King Street should all have bike lanes if Hamilton is to make any headway in the direction of being a city that attracts citizens who care about quality of life. We should make them prominent and safe so that drivers know that bicyclists are to be respected on the road - and so that the infrastructure disallows for careless car/bike accidents.
It's not only about bike safety. It's also about sending the message to all citizens, both new and old, that Hamilton is progressing in the direction of higher quality of life for all of its residents.
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.
