Montreal - NDG Valley Of Death
So... municipal elections are heating up. I go to Concordia and ride down through NDG every day through the 'Valley of Death' bike path on Maisonneuve between Vendome and Benny. In the NDG area, the state of disrepair of this particular bike path has become quite contentious. One candidate is recommending a bike overpass for the entire intersection, but apparently the path is the jurisdiction of the city, not the borough. I would very much like to at least see the path's potholes be fixed up. The state of the road is scary; the only reason I still use it is because last time I rode down Sherbrooke someone opened their door into me (not to mention countless close calls).
All this is to ask if anyone who rides in this area has any thoughts?
Also, more Montreal posts! Too much Toronto.
