While I appreciate the good intentions and the skilled and dedicated people organizing the program, but this seems like a bad idea to me.

Who exactly is this supposed to cater to? All the professionals who commute into KW by train/subway and don't have any way to get from the train station to their workplace? The massive numbers of tourists visiting KW and who need a way to get around to all of our sites and museums? The impoverished people downtown who have money to spend on bike rental?

Wait a minute... none of those people exist, and no one is going to use this service.

The massive investment will keep it going for a while, and then it will die out. It would be better to spend the cash on infrastructure and let people buy their own bikes.

  • North America is eventually going to figure out that, for all the right reasons, we need more bicycles on our roads. Dust off your bicycle and go cycling. And if the gas-burning dinosaurs start to crowd you, it's your road and you paid for it. Take the lane for yourself.
