For a winter city this focus on bike lanes and bike plans is an absolute JOKE AND WASTE OF TAXPAYER MONEYII! Who's going to ride a bike in -35C weather There are plenty of other priorities in this city that need attention Give the bike plans a rest! Like Reply 4d Edited 16 Hi Matt former member of the Edmonton Transit System Advisory Board here Very few of us would bike during -35 weather However only once in the last ten years has it ever reached -35 degrees celcius With windchill only 49% of the days every year ever reach -30 degrees celcius In Edmonton's coldest month january we average a low of 15 degrees Celsius Montreal Calgary Oulu Copenhagen Boulder Salt Lake City Minneapolis are all winter cities with pretty great bike infrastructure Biking can be safe if we build the right infrastructure Also i know vou're concerned about taxes did you know that the government forces taxpayers and businesses to heavily subsidize your daily drive? Your free parking at stores free' use of roads and their constructiondamagemaintenance the low cost of fuel paid by subsidies to keep gas prices low far outweigh any subsidies for bike lanes The tax argument is not an argument anyone should lean on to discredit the benefits of bike infrastructure vs automobile infrastructure Grab a bike and let's go for a ride Matt!
