Bikeshare does not require an extensive network of bike lanes in order to succeed. Hamilton is actually a great city to ride in. Of course there a lot of obvious gaps in our dedicated bike infrastructure, but bike usage is growing despite the roadblocks. These bikes will get more people pedaling, and will give the city a reason to revamp and speed up the infrastructure plan.

This system in particular is also forward-thinking, reasonably priced for implementation and will make us look like pioneers instead of followers. I think Hamilton's SoBi will put Toronto's Bixi to shame.

I also think your pessimism is grossly misplaced.
