Montreal has so many cyclists, it has bike traffic now
So many people have begun using the city's most popular bike routes that more than 20 bikes often get backed up at red lights. Traffic on some bike paths has quintupled. And bike advocates and cyclists are beginning to push for more major bike lanes.
No one wants to wait in traffic, but it's great to see that level of enthusiasm for cycling, even in a city known for its disgustingly cold weather.
