    I can’t believe so may cyclist are getting killed, it’s sad.

    And yet another one today that does not sound as if she will make it- Crushed from the waist down…Too many lately. Whatever happened to driving defensively? I ride expecting every car to potentially hit me and act accordingly. I never pull up beside cars who are about to make right hand turns but wait behind them to do so.
    I just dont trust any drivers………..breaks my heart to think of all these cyclists getting killed as of late

    It makes the removal of the lanes on Jarvis quite ironic.

    Defensively – the cars cannot see me until it is too late for them to react.

  • Actually, it makes the removal of the Jarvis lanes seem brilliant – becuase they were traded for dedicated bike lanes on Sherbourne. Sherbourne has calmer traffic, wider lanes and connects with Queens Quay for better connectivity to the bike network.
