I worry that the debate over cycling in Calgary is missing the bigger picture.

There's been a lot of skepticism over the report that predicts adding a cycle track to the busy downtown 1 Street S.E. will only slow travel times for cars by 30 to 60 seconds. So I called the guy who wrote the report for an explanation.

One person described the bike facilities being built in new office towers downtown as "palatial." Why? "We’ve noticed a great demand."

Wow, huge response to this piece this morning, I think because people are desperate for information about winter cycling. Perhaps it shows that riding year round is something anybody can do.
