Greenbank and Merivale roads are both very uncomfortable for bicycling, so most cyclists choose to ride on the sidewalk. Both also have an asphalt "kill strip" which is pretty continuous and quite bikeable. I usually ride on the kill strip, and it seems like this would require only some pretty minor changes to make it into a real cycletrack. What is stopping us from making Greenbank and Merivale Rds. bike-friendly? Example image on Greenbank Rd.: http://goo.gl/maps/3fMWp
