Hamilton, being flat and quite bicycle friendly in spite of the amount of traffic there, is the site of many cyclists using Beaumont Street.
The first gentleman I have seen riding in a suit on another occasion, he looks quite dapper on his bike.
The man with his son behind him was part of a family group cycling down the street, there was a mother and another child on her separate bike, confidently cycling through the traffic, quite safely.
I find it easy to cycle along Beaumont Street as the traffic moves quite slowly and I can easily keep up with it, so I have no fear of taking up the whole lane when cycling there, well out of range of any car doors which may be opening. If I am not keeping up with the traffic, it is not long until the car in front of me has to stop for a crossing pedestrian or a red light, I never hold up cars for more than a half block, and given that me on the bike means one less car, I think that is a positive for the traffic situation there. I much prefer to ride along Beaumont than to drive.
