The bike lane controversy in Vancouver continues. This time the debate surrounds a proposal for a new route in Kitsilano along the Point Grey-Cornwall corridor.

Those opposed are quick to criticize Mayor Gregor Robertson. A new Kits resident himself, “Mayor Moonbeam” will have bike lanes “right to the office,” writes one sarcastic critic.

Many oppose bike lanes because of the perceived havoc they cause motorists and business owners. Opponents say traffic backs up, parking becomes a problem, and accessibility to businesses is lost along bike routes.
