Edmonton is the most recent of several major Canadian cities to realize the benefits of implementing a cycling network all at once in a defined area. Well, that new network is set to open. Along with that their city website provides a full guide (pdf) for all street users, including safety tips for those cycling, or walking, or driving around the new facilities.
Relevance to Brockville? Sometimes cited by anti-laners as a city removing bike lanes, this blog previously reported the fallacy of that approach to cherry picking the news through a lens of confirmation bias to unearth out of context support for weak arguments. This blog also previously reported on Edmonton’s $7 million decision to follow Calgary’s lead in implementing a “quick build” protected downtown cycle network. As always, the anti–laners’ campaign of disinformation is full of holes that are easy to challenge.
