Recently the City "fixed" the issue by mounting yellow-and-black diagonal hazard signs in front of them.

I'm pretty sure those are gone now, actually. They came down soon after the article on the subject.

And yes, I'm a cyclists and I'm frequently disappointed in how disconnected our great cycling routes are. I go from Westdale to HGH, and the gaps are absurd - there's a bike lane north of Barton on Victoria, but it doesn't connect to the Cannon track. There's no good place to turn south anywhere west of James.

What impresses me is that the cyclists of this city are generally producing realistic, pragmatic suggestions for cycling improvements. I mean, nobody is saying "turn King into a woonerf", we're talking about useful, reasonable plans for cycling infrastructure with real-world traffic counts in mind.

And yet the cycling office seems to ignore us.

I mean, look at this map:

There is so much fantastic low-hanging fruit in there.
