Director CVRD B - Rod Nichol

Rod Nichol here, as a retired RCMP officer from Courtenay Det. I share your concerns and I am very aware of the many close calls cyclists endure on a daily basis in the valley on our rural roads. Unfortunately the regional district does not maintain or improve the rural roads. I agree the shoulders are not wide enough (if they even have one). I have often thought, would it be safer for cyclist to ride against the flow of traffic on the other side of the road? Thinking outside of the box, at least the cyclist would see traffic coming at them instead approaching unseen and often unheard from behind. Just a thought I think it would be safer, I would like to know what you think, You never know. Hoping the highways will be widen our roads any time soon by the province is just not likely. Rod
