    “Is it safe to share the road on the Bells Corners strip?” A resounding NO!!! Traffic on Robertson Rd. is a frikin’ nightmare, with a road carrying way more vehicles than it can handle. Stay on the sidewalks and back ways if you value your life on a bicycle.

    The fake bike lanes are useless, and will eventually get someone maimed or killed. I have many hours of riding a bike logged the last few years, and it just keeps getting worse…

    Too many distracted drivers also. Cars full of built-in electronic garbage doesn’t help.
