Every spring, I recommit to riding my bike for my Friday night "LCBO/Fortino's" trips, and every year I fail, because although I also live very close (10 minutes by bike from either location), I don't feel there is ANY way I can safely ride from King and Locke to the Dundurn LCBO without riding on the sidewalk. So occasionally I walk the route, but again always end up taking my life in my hands at that intersection. Road planning is not much different from transit planning. We know that if we give people 15 minute headways in Transit planning, we get orders of magnitude more riders than at 45 minutes, or even 30. So how many more people would come out of their cars and on to their bikes or on foot if they could do so without having to 'surf the green wave' to get there...Steely eyes and firmly set jaws notwithstanding. :)
