Bicycle lanes would be of benefit along Glanford Avenue

Yes to bike paths and lanes west of the Pat Bay Highway.

Glanford north from McKenzie Avenue is so busy and dangerous for cyclists.

Why is this very busy avenue not properly improved with bike lanes, proper sidewalks, and turning lanes? It seems like there is plenty of room to accomplish this without any expropriation. Come on Saanich, please.

Improvement and beautification of Glanford Avenue north of McKenzie is long overdue.

On a happier note, we cycle all over the Capital Region and love the wonderful trail systems being developed in Saanich and beyond.
