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.
