I’m excited to hear the North Shore is hosting a two-year e-bike pilot.
What a great way to encourage active transportation, and give people the chance to try an electric bike. That said, as a daily bike commuter I’m all too aware that many North Shore bike routes are in close proximity to fast-moving vehicle traffic, 18-wheeler trucks, parked cars (and their opening doors) and nerve-wracking intersections.
If the goal is to encourage more cyclists, can we please start with safe infrastructure? If you build it, the bikes will come – and if you don’t believe me, just visit Beach Avenue in Vancouver this weekend.
