While Vancouver has made important strides as a cycling city in the past few years, some argue these projects have been too modest to disrupt the hegemony the car still enjoys on our streets. What are the bold policy decisions needed to move cycling past a single-digit mode share, and into the same arena as cities like Amsterdam and Copenhagen?
