BTW...I was at the recent Burlington cycling committee open house, and there's talk about a series of new bikeways circling the city, including a Netherlands-style dedicated lane across Dundas, bike lanes on Burloak, widening of the north-end hydro corridor multi-use path between Dundas/Appleby and Brant/North Service, and the south end hydro corridor path between Sherwood Forest Park and Downtown. The work is to be done in conjunction with roads projects, so it will be put together piecemeal over the next 12-20 years We'll see.

The city does have a pretty good network of bike lanes, although many of the on-road lanes are incomplete, end for no apparant reason, and don't connect with GO. The main obstacle there is the 403/QEW...none of the roads which cross or interchange with the highways are included in the cycling network, and that's the area with the worst traffic and volume of trucks. Fix that, and Burlington would be overall be one of the most pleasant places to cycle in Ontario.
