Driving/Cycling, Montreal v. Burque: Another in a Series of Differences
I’ve spent the last few days compiling a list outlining how hard driving is in Montreal versus cycling, but the list has gotten too long for a single post. So I’ll do everybody a favor and post a few observations in a series that can easily be digested and/or ignored.
Let’s start with the positives, and look at cycling lights,, signage (yes, that’s a word) and accoutrement (that’s a real word “we” stole from the French):
Alright, enough for now. We’ll move to the driving side of things in the next installment. Have a great weekend, everybody!
P.S.: You might have the impression based on the above that the “cyclists don’t have to stop at stop sign” thing was universally loved up here, unlike the seeming universal loathing about the idea back in ABQ. Au contraire…read the comments to this Montreal Gazette story.
The difference isn’t the level of loathing, by some/many. Oh, it’s still there. The difference…well more about that next time, too.
