The Mountain has that east west cycling connection that the lower city lacks. There is a 2 metre bike lane on both sides of Stone Church. Sunday morning I rode that from Omni Drive in the West to Pritchard Road in the East in twenty five minutes, with a tailwind and four stops for red lights. Of course, when you have done that you have gone from one Home Depot/Chapters-Indigo/Cineplex to another ie nowhere, but that's beside the point. You have crossed town on one road, in a beeline. The bike lane continues on Stone Church to Mud and then into the suburb north of Mud, but I didn't follow.

Except for a stretch of Lawrence Road from Gage over to the Red Hill Creek, there is nothing comparable below the Mountain. All the connectivity is given to the passenger vehicles. But Cannon would be a better candidate than Main for a through line, I think. Better still would be the CN main line, just north of Barton.
