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 wrote a city affairs column in Hamilton Magazine, and several of his articles have been published in the Hamilton Spectator. His articles have also been published in The Walrus and HuffPost. He maintains a personal website, has been known to share passing thoughts on Twitter and Facebook, and posts the occasional cat photo on Instagram.

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.
