Um, I'm not sure about any of this. Are we maybe running into opposition wanting a bit too much too fast? Bike routes through the downtown I see, followed maybe a little later by bike-share rentals when people are seen to be using the bike routes. The failure to "build it and they will come" is evident on Ferguson Ave., which is roundly criticized above. The city has spent money "beautifying" the pavement and lighting, but there's little commercial development along the route to attract cyclists or pedestrians, and few cyclists or pedestrians to interest business owners. It is an attractive route to bike from Corktown down to the bay, however. Pedalling across Cannon and the railway are, shall we say, accomplishments?
