    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    I've seen those bike boxes on UofT campus, but I'm slightly embarrassed to say that I don't actually get what they're supposed to be for... I hope it's not something about giving more space/time to wobbly cyclists getting up to speed on the green light.... enlighten, please!

    All hands on deck is a nice touch. The stats for Toronto in recent years show cyclists receiving anywhere from 20-40% of citations in the annual bike week blitz whilst making up less than 2% of total road users. Hope you do better than that in Hamilton!
