... as much as I love this as a cyclist, this is the kind of bike lane that's going to provoke nothing but pure, unbridled rage from drivers when they lose a driving lane off of that already-jammed street.

Anybody know if they're going to provide a good connection from King@Breadalbane to Head@Dundurn? Since that's the huge gap for me. The eastbound King bike lane ends at Breadalbane and a nice bike route into downtown starts east of Dundurn on Head... but there's a no-man's-land in the middle. Crossing Dundurn at Head sucks.

Continuing the King St. 403 bridge bike-lanes out to Dundurn would fix it partially, but the Dundurn/King intersection would be a problem because you're contra-flow (plus possible trouble with contra-flow traffic passing in front of the gas station (which is one of those frustrating places where almost the entire frontage of the place is sloped driveway side-walk - why does Esso hate strollers?) Probably have to dismount to get through that - most cyclists would just ride in the crosswalk there.
