I listen to Talk820 on the way home sometimes and Dave Shuttleworth was talking about this the other day. His comment was along the lines that - Hamilton isn't a city for bicyclists and never will be.

I can understand that argument, but there was a time when cars were enjoyed only among the rich. So we paved roads and centred our lifestyles around the automobile not by force, but by promoting it as a luxury of the rich (ie: credit cards, cell phones, organic foods, etc. - That's another topic altogether).

So what gives? We can develop multi-million roadways - no problem? We can turn what appears to be an impossible feat: converting small 2 lane roads into a 4 lane roads, but not a mere 1 metre lane for bicycles?
