I have considered this Lawrence Road bike lane for some time. What boggles my mind about it is that it runs parallel to hamilton's flagship park! Why can't we have a proper paved through-lane for bikes going through Gage Park from Cumberland to Sherbrooke - and then have Sherbrooke as a side street "bike route" (remove stop signs in the bike direction and put traffic calming for cars).

From the end of sherbrooke, a cyclist could easily connect to lawrence or to king depending on their eventual destination...

Then cyclists wouldn't have to engage with motorists on Lawrence through that straight, fast, car-friendly stretch.

Gage park is OK to ride through now, but when there's any moisture on the ground it's like riding on a beach, making it basically impassable for much of fall, spring, and any time there's heavy snow.

Wouldn't it be nice to actually be able to ride through gage park all year?
