I guess that cycling data is valuable enough that it somehow makes money for that biko app?

Krug St. from East avenue under the bridge, not sure for how far, is closing until October. Signs up for a public consultation regarding on street bike lanes scheduled for April 18th at the Auditorium. Not sure of the time. I was driving and couldn't read the entire sign.

-April +May.

Details are:

Public information centre (P.I.C.) for Krug Street which will take place on May 18th from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium in the Subscriber’s Lounge.


It is pretty important that those who care about this issue attend and push for very good infrastructure.  This is one of the few east-west routes in Kitchener and one of the few options for crossing the highway safely.  It would be very sad if this was compromised for parking.

Of course there are plenty of places where crossing at 90 degrees is difficult and going to ensure drives treat you badly.

This video needs an associated video for drivers:

 - Drivers, several locations on the route require cyclists to swerve to cross the tracks at a 90 degree angle.  DO NOT HONK AT THEM in return, DO NOT DRIVE AGGRESSIVELY at them in response.  DO ANTICIPATE these locations, and DO NOT TRY TO PASS at these locations.

 - Cyclists must ride 1 meter out from the curb, you must give 1 meter space, so there isn't enough room to pass, do not try.
