Not to answer or Ryan's behalf, but: - decreased injuries/deaths (auto/auto, auto bike, auto/pedestrian, bike/bike & bike/pedestrian) - increased health of citizens (both cyclists and non-cyclists) - increased urban density - increased visitation to commercial districts - increased disposable income for users - decreased infrastructure maintenance costs - planning ahead for a time when automobile transit won't be as appealing (due to increased oil prices) - and it should increase transit usage

That's just a few.

Downsides I can think of are: - initial cost - reduction of on street parking - drivers readjusting their commutes (should funnel people traveling crossing the city at 70 or 80kmph to the 403, QEW, Linc and Red Hill) - possible increased travel time during peak hours
