not sure I agree when looking at smaller city examples like Portland. NY is so dense and congested that trying a bike, even without safe lanes, is worth it. Cites the size of Hamilton and Portland are dominated by dangerous, high-speed auto arterials. And the lower cost of living makes it easier for folks to buy a car. That, combined with no safe cycling routes limits the number of bikes on the road. However, I believe the pent-up demand for people to be able to safely ride is just as high as in NY or anyplace else. If Hamilton laid out an initial grid of protected bike lanes through the lower city and Mountain, I suspect the cycling numbers would skyrocket.
