Cycling in Waterloo Region
Guys, seriously, bring this up to local media. Make it a public issue.

What level of government is responsible for this?

It varies, but the most reliable offender is the Region, as it is in this case.

As for bringing it to the media's attention, it's very hard to get the right message.

The problems with the uptown bike lanes have more or less come out as "we hate bike lanes"...not "these bikelanes have easily correctible design flaws".

Starting something on Twitter can't hurt. Lets hope for some RTs and the attention of the Region

Just passed not one, but 2 vehicles on the bikelane in uptown with their hazard lights on, so I guess that makes it OK then.

Reading this international article about Calgary's cycle tracks was up-lifting heading in to Monday's election.

With the right leadership this could be our community in 20 months...instead of 20 years...

"A little over a year later, Calgary’s downtown cycle-track network was delivered two months early and $2m under budget – reallocating just 2% of downtown street space to induce 1.2 million bicycle trips over 18 months, with little to no driver disruption."

"...the Peace Bridge has become one of the most-travelled walking and cycling routes in the city, with more than 5.5 million crossings, an average of 28,000 per week – not bad for a region that enjoys a meagre 1.75% modal share for cycling."
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.
