The construction on York is why I have not come into town for the Farmer's Market this summer. York, on the Hamilton side of the 403, is hostile and unwelcoming. I've had my fill of that route.

Although, I did have to visit the east end yesterday, and came in through Beach / Woodward. Love the bike lane on Woodward.

Progress is slow, it's imperfect, it's dangerous, but I did my tour of duty cycling 10 years full time in Hamilton. Much better now than 5, 10 years ago. Keep improving! The bike share should put some pressure to continue improving!

Please let's report people parked on bike lanes to the police, or at least file a complaint with the city. It needs to stop, especially because of the contra-flow. If a cyclist stood stopped in a lane of live traffic, it'd be seconds before angry horns were honking. From the number of comments and photos mentioning cars on the bike lanes, it looks like if a city officer hung out on Hunter for a bit, they'd earn their pay for the day.
