    Bike lanes to be painted along Dundas St.

    Got a political party flyer in the mail the other day and they have agreed to implement bike lanes along Dundas St. W from The 427 east to Kipling Ave.

    I wish it were a liitle further along that stretch. It can get quite hecktek with the auto traffic.
    I typically stay off that stretch and use the industrial side streets more. I find that the truck drivers show more respect towards cyclists than people behind the wheel of a personal vehicle.

    Truckers and cyclists should get along. We have a common enemy. BTW, I fit into both categories.
