Do you think the city does enough to accommodate cyclists?

  • Tali Sitschkar, employee, Direct Action in Support of Community Homes (DASCH)

    I think they are doing as much as they can, but drivers and the public need to be more aware of cyclists, as well.

  • Leo Palay, third-year student, business

    When there is a bike path, you should bike in the path or get out of the way.

  • Patricia Castro, fourth-year student, politics and history

    There really isn’t enough bike lanes and they are really narrow. It slows down traffic in a lot of areas.

  • Katherine Waddingham, community member

    No, I don’t think so. From what I’ve seen and heard, I don’t think where you are supposed to ride your bike is safe enough and drivers need to be more aware.

  • Michelle Cleland, third-year, psychiatric nursing

    I think that the city is sort of trying and that is nice to see. However, many motorists don’t know how to drive around cyclists and that creates tension.

  • Naomi Sirota, employee, University of Winnipeg

    No, I live on Roslyn and I get yelled at if I’m on the sidewalks or if I’m on the street. I’ve almost been hit, I’ve been attacked and yelled at. I can see the city trying but they should be more accommodating.
