Bike lanes not being used

Reader has seen few cyclists on the Cook Street bike lanes completed in October 2015

The Cook Street bike lanes between Maplewood and Quadra that were completed by Saanich in October 2015 have now been in place for a little over a year.

I travel that route every week on three or more occasions, and in the past year I have observed a total of five bike riders using the bike lanes.

Given the construction took over one year and cost several millions, I question the value and need for the project.
