    don’t ride along the line when there is a bike lane, unless the law has caghned, bikes may ride on the outside of the bike lane. Snow, ice, glass and other debris forces bikes out. If motorists have an issue with that contact the city and tell them to maintain the bike lanes.As for the riding two abreast? This is done by recreational riders not commuters, at least in my experience. As for your three questions:1-No, it’s not dangerous. If there was a reason I would say yes it’s because of irresponsible motorists. One thing I noticed two days ago when I was on the roads, is how bad (female) motorists were. Speeding and not adjusting their driving for the conditions on the road.2-With how dangerous driving is during this time of year, I’d be more willing to push for making driving illegal. Simply watch any news report after a dusting of snow, and all the fender benders, roll overs etc.Two years ago when I was walking my dog, I came close to smacking my head on the ground because of black ice. Should we make walking illegal also? In many cases pedestrians make their way onto the road any ways to walk.This past January our local radio station had the discussion after a cyclist was killed in Niagara Falls during a snow storm. A woman phoned in and said I shouldn’t have to share the narrowed roads with cyclists, because I’m not comfortable driving by them. I would say if SHE is not comfortable, SHEshould not be on the roads. 3-Elite athlete? Far from it. I’d go as far to say that 90% of the cyclists in St. Catharines are just your average everyday person with no or limited athletic abilities. This time of year I find the spandex crowd hides and 99.9% of cyclists are just your average Joe’s/Jane’s.
