Runners to be banned from Montreal bike paths
Runners are to be banned from the Montreal bicycle path network, according to a series of recommendations submitted to the Commission sur le transport et les travaux publics.
As for joggers, walkers or supporters of skateboarding, they are "too slow" for safe access to the network, says the Commission.Note that this does not apply to Multifunctional recreational paths like the federally-owned Lachine Canal bike path.
So a word to the running community: Runners: please remember to use the sidewalk. If you like the bike path so much, please go and get a bike.
Here's our favorite old joke: How can you tell the difference between the bike path and the sidewalk next to it? The runners are on the bike path! This wouldn't be funny if it wasn't true.
