Also the roundabouts on 2nd are a bit awkward when cars approach at the same time. That and because there are perfect cars along second street if two cars are coming at the same time and passing near parked cars it makes it difficult for the cyclist. Couple years back I got my bike clipped by a mirror when trying to pass a parked car at the same time two cars were trying to pass at the same time. Second would be good if it was a protected cycle track.I don't mind 2 ST as is either - but gotta say 2/3s of my close calls with cars have all been on this route. I think because it's not a busy street, drivers get a little careless. Which is unfortunate, I see a lot of families with kids biking here. In general though, the "Street Friendly" routes could use better signage &or fresh paint. I feel like the Nose Creek Pathway needs better connections to the neighbourhoods it passes. A bridge over the creek at 32 Ave would be a good start... But that issue lies with the elevation difference, so admittedly not much to do there. Also, I personally find most of Multi-Use Pathways not great for cycling - to get somewhere fast - but more for leisure.
My idea for a North Central Cycling network would be:
4 ST NW, from the bluff to 72 Ave, where it would that transfer to Centre street, along with the Greenline, under Beddington Tr, through The Hills, and possibly over Stoney to the new communities there.
20 Ave, from Banff Trail (including a LRT crossing) to Nose Creek (some houses in the way though)
24 Ave, Children's Hospital to Confederation Park (maybe some sort of link to 20 Ave to avoid redundancy)
Some sort of continuation of the Edmonton Trail track - just not sure how... Seems so useless in it's current set up.
40 Ave, from Edm Tr to Northmount.
Northmount for it's entire length
12 Ave, from SAIT through Renfrew
6 ST NE, from that new creek crossing at 32 Ave to 8 Ave (already with painted lanes, but extended to Rotary Park)
19 ST, from the MUP at John Laurie to Bow River (and new river crossing)
Charleswood/32 Ave - why are do many streets with painted lanes abruptly end??
Street Friendly/Designated Routes (not sure what they're called?)
Most of these would stay as is, but would add another N-S route East of Centre, probably 1 ST.
24 or 29 Ave, East of Confed, to 6 ST NE
64 Ave, from Nose Hill to Deerfoot City.
Highland Park - as a continuation of Confed MUP
I think this would fill in most of the gaps. Probably missed a few, but just noticing these missing links as I get out more and around on my bike. But yeah, justice a crazy fantasy.. Could move this to the fantasy thread or the cycling one lol.

HahaI'd respectively disagree.
I thought this infill was kind of cool:
Kind of has a Cyberpunk feel to it.
That building is HIDEOUS!!!
I saw a few of the sea-can shops along the river pathway in EV over the weekend, so you can rent bicycles etc. Pretty good location actually, with the mega-busy weekend pathway right nearby. I’m sure the others are stored somewhere so they can be put into the next space actvation project by CMLCI was disappointed that EV Junction was going away, but this helps. It's nice to see it put to good use.
From an earlier postDo we know what this project is?
410 - 6 St SW
2 buildings ranging in height from 44 to 55 storeys (up to 286 metres)
823 units total
Ah yes, looks like there has been an update based on their latest April 2018 Investor Presentation:
