There is a bike lane on the street my apartment building is on. Why, every time a bike goes past, it is a commuter, not specifically recreational. I see the people bundled up, with knapsacks on, seemingly headed to school or work. And there's the dude with the cargo e-bike. The bikes locked up with mine at a plaza aren't there for recreation, those people are shopping. I see a lot of people jogging but no recreational cyclists specifically, certainly not many this time of year. I count the kids that are obviously heading to school as commuters, because even though it's recreational for them as well, it is utilitarian.

Might as well throw in that, the other morning after a fresh snowfall, headed to the office at 7AM, there were already a bunch of bike tracks cut into the snow on the lakeshore trail, and by that afternoon it had been plowed and sanded but not salted, it was awesome to see, and a nice stress free commute on one of those "hundreds of collisions" mornings for the GTA.
