One more bike concern.
There are few debates in this city that come with the energy of a good discussion on the bicycle.
Do a commentary or blog, newspaper column, radio show, whatever, on the bike experience in Hamilton; you are bound to get some participants.
However, most of the time it will be a discussion centred on the bike vs. the automobile.
You know the banter, bike lanes vs vehicle lanes, lack of respect for one another, rules of the road, and general distain for each other.
The best thing about this latest debate is there isn’t a car to be seen near the discussion. Not even parked.
This ruckus is about e-bikes and do they have the same rights as any standard bicycle.
In other words, are e-bikes welcome on city walkways, trails and bike paths and lanes.
If complaints and traffic to the CHML poll question of the day are any indication the answer is NO!
Oddly enough the complaints cyclists and walkers had with the e-bikes are very similar to the complaints drivers had with cyclists.
They both think they own the road, and never obey the rules.
I’m Scott Thompson.
Wednesday on The Scott Thompson Show!
Should we start a lottery pool to bet on when the stadium will be finished?
