Bike commuters give their opinions

On May 31st, members of the WUCC worked with Yukon Energy employees to hand out snacks to commuters for bike to work week.  At the same time, we collected your thoughts on what your dream bike route to work would look like and what the current barriers/difficulties are now to you and your neighbours riding more regularly.

The full list of comments can be found here; they are quite detailed and diverse. Several riders expressed a desire for separated spaces and safer, more convenient ways to bike in town.  The most common criticism was that the bike lanes and paths that do exist are disconnected.  A fear of cars was also cited more than once as a worry for bike commuters.
