It's really a no win situation for cyclist or any other riders in downtown . I'm a trials rider but I know the roady mentality but they're just trying to protect they're own ass .
Look out for flingin doors cause I been there done that .Twice .
It was not fun .
That's usually the case.

I used to commute to work on my bike and I do touring with my bike and when there is no shoulder for our bikes to go on it is safer to come out more to stop drivers from passing too close to us.

It is quite unfortunate that Vancouver doesn't have more bike lanes.

The weather is getting nicer, I am almost done rebuilding my bike for my commute to work
