I met Ward when he was on the board of Spencer House Senior Centre, and it has been great to see our new all ages and abilities bike facilities giving the Skinners new options for getting around our community.
My wife and I are both over 70 years old. We bike around town for both our errands and exercise. We often bike on South Park as we live in the area. The new bike lane, with a barrier from the traffic, is terrific. We feel much safer and the inconvenience to the cars is minimal. In fact, as a driver I like it because we know where the bikes are and that we will not be in conflict with them.
There is now a new bike lane on Hollis street with a physical barrier and it is also amazing. Hollis, before the lane, was only viable for very experienced cyclists.
We really appreciate the work done by Waye Mason and others to achieve this great addition to our city.
