I'm completely behind the Yes We Cannon campaign for bike lanes on Cannon Street by 2015. And I'm going to be biking downtown for the city Bike to Work and School Day event on Monday, May 27. So when I started reading the email that arrived this morning from The Yes We Cannon Organizing Committee about a ride down Canon to Gore Park that morning, I thought: What the heck; I'll head out early and join the Canon Street ride at 7:30.
But then I read this paragraph: "We are excited to announce that we are going to be escorted by an Ambulance, and we will have safety vests to keep us all visible and safe."
An ambulance. And safety vests. What better way to send the message to anyone walking or driving past that cycling downtown is a dangerous thing to do, and damned weird to boot.
I think I'll just ride with the Westdale group again this year.
