The City of Vancouver has added a bike route detour update to its open data web service, while the City of Hamilton still struggles to add bike routes.

By the way, Vancouver also has a cycling hotline.

Ryan McGreal, the editor of Raise the Hammer, lives in Hamilton with his family and works as a programmer, writer and consultant. Ryan volunteers with Hamilton Light Rail, a citizen group dedicated to bringing light rail transit to Hamilton. Ryan writes a city affairs column in Hamilton Magazine, and several of his articles have been published in the Hamilton Spectator. He also maintains a personal website and has been known to post passing thoughts on Twitter @RyanMcGreal. Recently, he took the plunge and finally joined Facebook.

Hamilton's bike route detours? "cyclists dismount and cross via sidewalk" (or similar) as seen on the Main st/403 bridge. I'm waiting for "motorists turn off engine and push vehicle via bike lane" when they renovate the other side.
