Sherbrook Street Bike Lane

One more hurtle ...

The Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works meeting on Tuesday July 13th at 10:30 AM will be reviewing the motion to remove the stretch of Sherbrook Street between Ellice Ave and Cumberland Ave from the city’s Active Transportation Network. (Agenda item #10). Although the City Centre Community Committee defeated this motion, it is important that the Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works also shows support for the active transportation on Sherbrook.

Please show your support for the bike lane on Sherbrook by emailing the City Clerk with your comments, or by registering to speak at the meeting.

Winnipeg's Cycling Hall of Shame

Winnipeg roads are hard on cyclists. The Hall of Shame contains a photo and a short description of the worst examples of roads and other infrastructure from a cycling perspective.

Commuter Cycling Trends in Winnipeg, 2007-2010
(bicycle counts)

Since 2007, volunteers from Bike to the Future have been counting cyclists at key locations in Winnipeg during morning and afternoon rush hours. The counts take place during the first week of April, May, and June.

Jeremy Hull (BttF's research guru) has used this data to produce a report entitled Commuter Cycling Trends in Winnipeg, 2007-2010.

Bike to the Future thanks Jeremy and all the volunteers who have counted cyclists.
