Seriously, biking is impractical as a transportation method for anything but leisure. Sweating during the summer means reeking at work/wherever you are going, which is not an option and winter conditions make it impractical as at best you are going to get messy, very quick on your bike or at worse be unable to traverse at all given the conditions. You can't carry a large load on a bike, and you certainly have a much higher capacity to damage what you do transport while riding one.

I would much rather the city focus on intensification and pedestrian initiatives, and leave cycling improvements to trail expansion and creating more larger parks for cycling to take place. Then and only then, if there is a massive, proven cycling culture in the city, consider expanding the existing bike lane system.
