If there were no need to come to a stop at that intersection, then the municipal traffic department would put a Yield sign there. Or leave it an uncontrolled intersection. Stop signs are there for a reason. Money is spent on examining and monitoring intersections and the signs there are placed based on hard data.

Don't forget, a lot of time the reason for that stop sign is pedestrian control and safety. Cyclists are always watching for cars, but the majority of urban cycling collisions in North America are between cyclists and pedestrians at intersections.

We aren't the only alternative commuters. But we do get to use the road, so we should follow the rules.
