Cycling on the sidewalk just isn't safe. It actually increases your chances of getting hit by a car.

I'm generally an advocate of shared roads, but see the need for bike lanes on key arteries like the York/Plains bridges. What's important, though, is that they're well thought out and not put there as political tokens.

They can't just be painted, pyloned and forgotten about. They must be cleared of snow in the winter (when slushy bike ruts freeze it's BAD news), and can't be used for parking or yard waste dumping. If we're going to build roads for bikes, then we must treat them as such.
