Say again?
Stop staring at that empty poorly-connected unsafe suburban bike lane, and turn your head a bit.

Toronto's College Street has had more bikes than cars:

Even New York City has an explosion of bike use, after they added improved bike infrastructure:

Heck, Amsterdam in the 70s used to be less bike-friendly than today's Hamilton!

And even Toronto's Sherbourne luxury bike lanes (when they first openned) had less bike traffic than our Cannon Bike Lanes. But ever since Queens Quay bike paths opened and the new Richmond/Adelaide cycle track; the Sherbourne bike lanes have picked up. I expect our Cannon bike lanes to continue to pick up traffic as we improve cycle infrastructure, helped along by the @CycleHamilton advocacy.

Now stop shaking your head whenever you drive past an empty suburban token painted line masquerading as a bike lane.
