We’re excited to share what we have accomplished in 2019 and where we plan to focus our work and efforts through 2020. We also have a guest speaker, Sylvia Buchholz of Safe Speeds Winnipeg, lined up to bring us up to date on their work advocating for safer streets in Winnipeg.

  1. I have just today’s Free Press article about the cyclist auto fatality at Grey St and Moncton Ave and therefore have a comment/suggestion that I hope will be of benefit to your Bike Winnipeg Organization in your upcoming AGM of August 11.
    Many of the current bike lanes are on city streets of medium to heavy density. One such street close by to me is Taylor Avenue, especially in the area westbound of Kenaston Av. My idea/suggestion is to add an 18″ Asphalt strip adjacent to the sidewalk anywhere there are existing sidewalks and posted bike lanes in the city. Supportive reasoning for this suggestion is that cyclists are often times afraid to ride on these so called bike lanes because of the intimidation from traffic. Another is the obvious case of laziness or ignorance of cyclists who chose the sidewalk instead of the roadway and expect walkers to move aside or totally off the sidewalk for the cyclist to pass. A final reason is that vehicle drivers, impeded by a cyclist, often speed past the cyclist crossing into the oncoming traffic lane to avoid the cyclist. This is a problem, because the driver misjudges the speed of the oncoming traffic, or ends up cutting-off the cyclist. As a cyclist, I sometimes get the feeling that this was the auto driver’s attempt to vent their displeasure, since I was in their way, even though I was permitted to be there. So lowering speed limits do not apply in these instances.
