Thanks for that not-too-long comment Graham.

You're right to say that timid action is not good enough. However I think you are conflating timidity with incrementalism in this case. They are not one and the same. Bold individual decisions are a big part of incremental change. So are less bold, smaller scale decisions. Pilot projects are a great way to ease less decisive and dedicated members of the community and members of council towards incremental change. Each decision to improve cycling infrastructure is a part of the bigger puzzle, but is rarely the piece that completes it. Each is necessary, but not sufficient.

With that said, I think Cannon should be celebrated on one hand, and pushed further for more on the other hand. I would just hate to throw the baby out with the bath water.
