Let’s cut through some of the smoke.
Next week the new transportation committee is deciding either to go ahead with a planned 6' Segregated Bike Lane (SBL) on Laurier or not.

Myself and other members of the Responsible Cycling Coalition are opposed to the plan as drafted.
We do not believe this $1.3M is well spent on this 1.3km design.

And now yeah for London! It is great that they got the bank sponsored routes of the Cycle Superhighway out to pilot. Each is about 12.5k long and NOT SEGREGATED. TfL is not considering segregation for the superhighway, due to expected usage levels, and that cyclists do NOT want to be treated differently from other vehicles.
Look at TfL plan, and you will see how balanced it is, with click through links for training courses http://www.tfl.gov.uk/roadusers/cycling/15831.aspx
This appears to be a great job of bringing bicycles forward as legitimate road users

Thanks for all those that have forwarded their support of the coalition. Yes...cycling is for everyone. Properly and responsibly.
