First off, I want to point out that north-central Hamilton is a big dead zone of bicycle friendly planning. From Main to Barton and Ferguson to Gage, you've got nothing but screaming one-way streets and sidestreets that go nowhere. Sidewalk time.

Wake up planners! A bus ticket is prohibitively expensive to a lot of folks in that area. It's also adjacent to the workplaces in the north end.

Suggested bike lanes for the inner city:

1) Mohawk (Yeah I said it.)

2) Queensdale

3) Shorten the bumpouts on Concession

4) Main St. (You heard me.)

(* Also, a bridge across the 403 south of Main for motors AND bikes / peds is needed.)

5) Two-way York / Wilson / Cannon with lanes

6) Shorten the bumpouts on Barton

7) Burlington St.

8) Dundurn from top to bottom

9) Queen St. Southbound

10) Bay St. Northbound

11) Catherine southbound

12) Victoria Northbound from Burlington St. to Main

13) From Victoria to the Red Hill Valley, north-south biking works well with side streets

I believe these changes would improve traffic flow in Hamilton and provide more FREEDOM of CHOICE to Hamiltonians who want to cycle.
