Agreed. Almost every arterial in Burlington has bike lanes now. Incredible feeling of safety cycling in Burlington.

The exception is Plains Road. That broken crappy sliver of bike lane is going to get me killed. In fact, it almost did. A badly sunken sewer grate forced me to evade - only to come within a few centimeters of getting flattened by a bus. And I'm normally very safety conscious.

And cultural issues still remain. The instant I'm outside of a bike lane, trust-fund princesses are honking at me. When the Appleby bike lane ends at New Street - there is only 2 more kilometers until my workplace, but I've been quite abused during those 2km.

The entire GTHA region needs work on education and cultural transformation. Infrastructure in Burlington is getting pretty good but there are a few very unsafe stretches remaining.
