Big surprise: we're still too fearful a town to close James from the Gore to the harbour [PDF link] to host the inaugural 2010 Hamilton Cyclovia.
Instead, we value the high speed freeways known as Main, King, Wilson and Cannon too much. Heck, even if James was closed from the Gore (with King still being allowed to move via police patrol) it would still leave King, Main, Hunter, Charlton and Herkimer as east/west routes.
Did I mention this event is on a Sunday?
Even more hilarious is that the closure ends at Burlington St, not Pier 8. In other words, just as the bikes are getting close to their beautiful waterfront destination, they'll have to gather up all the kids and be sure that nobody gets flattened by a car.
And people wonder why this town drives me nuts some times. Do it right, or don't do it at all. Quit pretending to be progressive when you're not.
