I currently live in Hamilton, but work as a bike messenger in Toronto so I spend alot of time on a bike. Hamilton scares the bejeezus out of me while Toronto is so much safer for a cyclist and its because they expect cyclists in Toronto, there are more of them. Main street and King street are death traps, nothing more than extensions of the 400 highway system. It should be a priority for Hamilton to create and bi-directional separated or raised bike lane that goes from stoney creek to McMaster. Build it on either Main or King by taking out a lane. It will slow traffic, and increase cycling. And why do the bike lanes in Hamilton go nowhere, they just end.... the Dundurn one doesnt seem to connect to anything it just stops at main and leaves you to face the most dangerous section of traffic in the city. You want to increase cycling rates you have to make it inviting and safe. Hamilton is scarey and I'm an expert!
