Bicycles and bridges

A week ago, the city of Vancouver converted 1 of the 5 lanes of Burrard Bridge into a bike lane for a 3-month trial. Many motorists predicted the apocalypse, but 'carmaggedon' was averted and cyclists, pedestrians and joggers turned out en masse. In fact, there was so little congestion that even City Caucus had to admit the experiment was a success (http://pricetags.wordpress.com/2009/07/13/burrard-bridge-day-three-monda...).
