"The thing is if we don't start we never will. You really do have to build it 'as they come' - the easy stuff should be already done - not wait for some magical threshold at some unspecified time in the future." - mikeonthemountain

Sure mikeonthemountain, I'll give you that. Let's just make sure what we do now can be expanded on in the future, not used against improved initiatives in the future.

"Another thing to remember is that bike lanes aren't very useful if they don't connect to anything. The York bike lane starts abruptly runs for awhile and then just stops. Like most of the bike lanes in the city." - nobrainer

Exactly nobrainer, as I called them the "half-baked bike lanes". I just worry that a push from the bicycle lobby to provide bike lanes now when money is tight, combined with a desire to quickly and cheaply placate that lobby, may result in just that and nothing more.
