I noted the signs that called for people to “Bike to Work” last week. While I applaud the intention of this activity as it serves to make folks healthier and reduces our dependence on cars, I am very concerned about public safety. Readers may recall the recent cancellation of a major bicycle event on the Sunshine Coast because of our dangerous highway conditions.
Until we solve our roadway problems of no real bike paths, heavy commercial traffic, narrow curving roads, and high speeds, then no one should venture out on Hwy. 101 for recreational purposes.
Let’s work together to build a new infrastructure that recognizes and remedies these extreme hazards.
