I’m very disappointed in the “battleground” and “fight” language in this Metro article about Toronto and York Region exploring the possibilities for Yonge bike lanes. It’s about making Toronto’s streets safe for all road users.
With the bike lanes on Bloor nearing completion, cyclists have turned their attention to Yonge Street as the next battleground for bike infrastructure in Toronto.Studies looking at installing separated bike lanes on Yonge from the waterfront to Bloor and Highway 401 to Steeles Avenue have started, and cycling advocates are pushing to turn them into a reality.To better understand what Toronto’s longest road is like for cyclists right now, cyclist and bike blogger Robert Zaichowski rode 18 kilometres from Queen’s Quay to Steeles last month.
What do you think? Is it a “battle”, or are we just all trying to get along and get home to our families safely, on inefficiently planned roads?
