    These things must be kept within bike lanes and MUTs.

    But from looking at other cities...they just mingle with traffic...just a mess waiting to happen

    We can't even keep bikes on the bike lanes & MUT. I got forced off the sidewalk onto the mud yesterday by someone screaming down the south side sidewalk on 102 Ave in Oliver on my way home. You know, the road with the separated bike lanes on the north side of the street? Yeah, that one. And it's not the first time.

    (Not all cyclists are terrible, and I'm super impressed with the usage of the bike lane in general.)

    Winter cities Oslo and Helsinki are on the last. Van and Mtl also on the list.

    Oslo & Helsinki are in Scandinavia which, while northern in latitude is not really comparable with Albertan winters.

    I'll take dry snow and cold and hot dry summers over wet... all year. Much easier to cycle.
    Live and love... your neighbourhood.

    Or people are dying & the cities are putting the brakes on them...

    Atlanta's mayor put a pause on the city's issuance of permits for smartphone-based electric scooter rentals Thursday following two recent deaths.
    The city had come under pressure from activists in recent days who had protested on Atlanta's streets after a man riding a scooter was run over by a transit bus.

    Good afternoon,


    On July 29, the City started accepting applications from businesses interested in operating e-scooter, bike, or e-bike shares in Edmonton. Operating permits have now been issued to two vendors and we will likely see e-scooters in Edmonton shortly.



    We wanted to share this with you because we’ve worked with you on bike education or traffic safety in the past and thought you might be interested!


    E-Scooters may travel on:

    Bike lanes

    Shared pathways

    Roads with a posted speed limit of 50km/h or less


    E-scooters cannot be used along sidewalks or unimproved trails in parks

    When parking, there will be no docking stations. It’s important to ensure shared scooters are not blocking doors, travel along sidewalks, or access to important amenities such as fire hydrants or pay stations.


    This blog has great information on where to park and ride E-scooters in Edmonton and detailed information is also available at edmonton.ca/scooters.

    Best,
    www.decl.org

    Can't wait to see these things all over the sidewalks - where they are not permitted, and left abandoned all over the place. In other cities that have allowed these, they have become quite a nuisance.

    They can be an issue, but hopefull people are more respectful.

    There most definitely will be a learning curve.

    How I Learned to Cycle Like a Dutchman

    In the bike-friendly Netherlands, cyclists speed down the road without fearing cars. For an American, the prospect is thrilling—and terrifying.
