Question with 2 notes
jakke asked: How do you feel about biking in downtown Vancouver? Are the separated bike lanes necessary? Does the overall infrastructure seem sufficient?
There could always be more bike lanes. I’ve seen cyclists hit parked car doors before because the driver didn’t look to see if someone was coming.
The separated bike lanes are great at preventing that and other kinds of accidents. I like that they are used sparingly, and in places where there are already lots of cyclists.
I think the city could do more to promote cycling, by advertising the bike routes especially around downtown. It would be great if there was more secured bike parking as well.
