Letters to the Editor 

Dear Halifax,I bike to work- down Quinpool and Cogswell to the Scotia Square area. Having sidewalks on both sides of the street seems accessive for the areas of Rannie Dr, Cogswell, all the way around Citadel Hill and all the way around the Commons. These sidewalks that do not haves homes immediately off of them can and should be turned into bike lanes. One sidewalk for bikers, the other for walkers. Mark the sidewalk like the streets with two way traffic and voila. We triple the amount of bike lanes in the city of Halifax.Worried about cost?? Take a can of spray paint and a day and mark the center lines. Cheap, easy, using space more efficiently and saving Haligonians without cars from ending up on the hood of one.
