As a supporter of one-way conversions, my support was mildly affected by a weekend visit to Peterborough. Observations: 1. I'd never been to this nice city before but now I understand why newbies to Hamilton dislike one way streets. I had to go to a store in the core and was a bit surprised to find it was a one way street. I had to make 2 runs around the block to get to what I was looking for. Not tourist friendly. 2. In spite of this, the core was quite nice and seemed to be doing ok commercially. There was parking on both sides of the street and the sidewalks were nice and wide for pedestrians. The one glaring difference was that there was not the sense of speeding traffic. I don't know if that was due to designed traffic calming or that the pedestrians have the protection of parked cars. 3. I didn't see any bicycle lanes and the street where our hotel was ( George St) didn't have any pedestrian crosswalks!
