At least one cycling activist believes residents in the area will like the plans for a new bike lane on Bay street.
The project will a create a north-south cycling link between the Durand neighbourhood, downtown and the James Street GO Station and Harbour.
The editor of Raise the Hammer says it can make a significant improvement to the city’s cycling network.
Ryan McGreal says it not only connects with several other bikes lanes such as those on Herkimer, Hunter and Cannon — it also connects to the Waterfront Trail system.
McGreal believes it will go a long way toward providing additional transportation into the proposed development at Pier 8.
The project will cost $600,000 and the province has indicated it will kick in half of the funding.
