The Anti-Glebe Cycling Plan

The other day, I was at a public consultation that was purportedly about the Glebe Cycling Plan (though it was mainly about driving, kind of about pedestrians and hardly about bicycling at all…but I digress). I won’t get into the details (it wouldn’t make a particularly interesting post), but they did display the following diagram. Do you see a problem with it?

This is an image of the “Glebe Cycling Plan”. Bank Street is the Glebe’s main street. The “Glebe Cycling Plan” seems designed to keep you away from Bank Street…and the numbered streets…and Central Park.

This plan is designed to get you through and out of the Glebe without enjoying any part of it. It’s a giant middle finger from the city. I’d love to see my councillor do something about it.
