Debora Puricelli: I recommend that everyone have a lighthearted view on the road. If drivers are happy when they see us, we can all share the road together.
Devin O'Brien: Obviously a bike lane.
Kerri Anderson: Fix up the potholes!
Kassa Dabreo: The Danforth is a rough ride. A lot of bike people use this road - there are too many potholes and no bike lanes.
Lisa Druchok: We need more enforcement of cars stopping behind the white line at stop signs. We need better road maintenance of the fringe we're supposed to ride in.
Simon Griffith: It would be nice to have a thoroughfare on a side street.
