This is why the Cannon bike lanes are more important than ever, and at the same time not enough. We need a second step to #YesWeCannon, a #YesWeMain project. If the big wide westbound truck route can have a bidirectional bike lane, then it only makes sense that the big wide eastbound truck route should have one too. They're far-enough apart that they wouldn't be redundant, and the lack of viable bike-traffic on King would be fine with a bike corridor a block to the South.

Also, the Ward 1 participatory budget project (bug somebody you know in Ward 1 to vote for your desires) includes bike lanes along York Boulevard and Cannon West of Bay Street. Those will hook Cannon to King Street via Dundurn's lanes.

Unfortunately, none of these projects are going to be completed this year, much less this month.

If the City sees Napier as a bike route, they should probably do something about all the stop-signs. Also, crossing Queen sucks. Also, cutting through the parking lot or the walking-path next to the Bay St. Federal building to get to Bay Street sucks. Also, ending at inexplicably 1-way Bay Street sucks.

Napier would work fine as a bike route with a little TLC, but as it stands it's not really adequate.
