I don't like it because you’ve got to worry about people walking out, traffic and cars. They just jump in front of you - pedestrians and passengers. It should be sidewalk, parked cars, then bike lane.

I’ve got fat tires for the snow, and a electric assist motor on here cause I work up by Canada’s Wonderland. And during the weekend I transport my 14-month old grandkid.

I love it!

Michelle: It's kind of slow!

Gilbert: It needs a passing lane, and they need to ban e-bikes from using them.

I just had to yell at some lady cause she was opening her door on me but when that’s not happening it’s great! I mean it’s pretty narrow, but pedestrians and people coming out of their cars need to be a little more cautious.

I like the bike lane. It's safer and the expansion of the bike share program is good. I like it!

I like it very much. It's safer ... most of the time. Except when drivers don't realize that it isn't a turning lane.
