I want it to go all away across! All the way to High Park. Same with College. It shouldn’t stop at Euclid.

It’s sort of a tease right now - cause I’m looking at it ending it right there. We’re safe for a bit of the way but then we’re right back into the line of fire. I broke my elbow during house calls in the summer so it’s a bit nervewracking getting back on.

I love it. I bike all year and it’s really dangerous usually. But I feel really safe on it. Like with the space for the doors to open. I like the buffer zone. But it would be better if it could continue!

I really like it! Cause you can get places faster than before! But I would really like it to be repaved. The pilot is great but for it to be permanent it needs to be a smooth cycleway. The chances for taking a spill on the uneven surface is quite high.
