Especially since suburban councilors haven't exactly been encouraging of cycling infrastructure in their wards. I mean, you know what would be awesome for SoBi bikes? A bike lane running the full length of Queensdale. What happened to that one? Oh, right, councilor Jackson.

And Dundas. How does Dundas have no bike lanes once you hit the end of Coote's Drive? Dundas with one of the largest bike shops in the city and a massive network of trails, but no way for a cyclists to get around the city without racing traffic? Seriously, the north side of Hatt Street is dead space - a no-stopping-lane bereft of cars. Dundas St has 2 parked-car lanes that are empty 99% of the time - you could easily cut that down to 1 parked-car lane and properly mark some spacious bike lanes.

SoBi is where the cyclists are, and cyclists are where the cycling infrastructure is.

I don't know whether or not "if you build it, they will come" is true, but I'm quite positive that the inverse is true:

If you don't build it, they won't come.
