Five years after it opened to both compliments and complaints, the Laurier Avenue bike lane has hit a significant milestone: its two millionth ride.

On Friday, the city announced in a press release that the segregated bike lane had passed the two-million-trip mark.

"I think if you went out and you interviewed people today, you would see that most people just accept it as part of the city's infrastructure — and frankly a pretty cool part of the city's infrastructure," said Coun. Keith Egli, chair of the city's transportation committee, on CBC's All In A Day.
