The intersection of King Edward with Rideau is apparently one of the most dangerous in Ottawa. This is Rideau Street, facing west. The place for the cyclist is non existent. Further down the road, there is a bike sign above the left lane, telling cyclists to cycle there, rather than in the bus lane. It is all pretty scary. There are quieter parallel streets though, but eventually you have to cross the Rideau Canal, and the choices are limited.
