So what! Kitchener finally gets sharrows.Big deal, Cambridge has had them for years. Now, put them on streets that actually need them instead of wasting them on King St.

We've had sharrows downtown (and a few other places away from downtown) in St. Catharines for a few years now, with many share the road signs as well.

As much as I like seeing additional bike "infrastructure" pop-up, I meet sharrows with a 'meh' at best.

To quote motorists from here at the time when sharrows made our newspaper "if you don't know to share the road with bikes, you shouldn't be on them".

At least you guys aren't removing bike lanes for on-street parking like we are here :\

Sorry.... Sharrows are a waste of time.
I had the pleasure of riding down King St on Friday between Gaukel and Cedar. I must have passed about 50 PMV's on the left while they were all stuck in gridlock. Do sharrows mean I have to be stuck in gridlock too? Dedicated cycle lanes are the only sensible answer.
Bring on the LRT!! Lets see if we can plug King St up for good.

  • 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.
