I posted a comment in Adrian's blog entry on my previous experiences living in the area and the extreme discomfort for walking in the area.

But as I was writing it, it occurred to me that my hatred of these streets has had another effect. I live in Ainslie Wood, and my office is downtown at Main and Hughson.

Now on a few occasions since moving to that office last August, I have cycled to work. My fastest route is to take the new segment of the rail trail to Studholme, and then down to Aberdeen or Herkimer to come across.

But getting across Queen is, often, really scary for a cyclist. And more than once I have thought about cycling, and then thought about getting through that area (and then again about getting down to Jackson St.) and thought... I'll take the bus.

We need safer networks!
