Bike rider against bike lane

Re. Penticton bike lane

Without a doubt, this is the most absurd project that has taken place in Penticton.

I have resided in this city for more than 50 years and have seen a lot of councillors and mayors come and go, but this about the worst idea yet.

People have ridden bicycles in this town and area for quite some time without a lot of reports of problems, other than bike thefts. If anything, the council could have looked at providing safe places to park and leave your bike when not riding.

Most cyclists don’t even want to be in the same vicinity as vehicle traffic when they ride.

If large numbers of cyclists began using the bike path, I question whether there would be sufficient room to accommodate them.

I have ridden a bicycle in this town for years and I am not about to endorse a path for bicycles.
