What Did You Think of Streets Closed for Bikes This Summer?


The City of Winnipeg is asking residents to provide feedback on their experiences with the Enhanced Summer Bike Route Program through an online survey.


As part of the program, the City created dedicated cycling routes on 17 streets throughout Winnipeg by limiting motor vehicle traffic to one block, either daily or on Sundays and holidays only (depending on route), from May to November. The program was first piloted in 2020 as a response to COVID-19 and the need for safe spaces to recreate while maintaining social distance.


The City is now looking to Winnipeggers to help them better understand how community members, residents, and cyclists experienced the Enhanced Sunday Holiday Bike Route Program pilot. The survey will also gauge whether there is desire to continue any or all of the routes in some capacity beyond 2021 or until full studies can be conducted in each route’s respective area.


Feedback received through an online survey will be presented alongside information on costs, usage, and operational considerations in a report to Council in 2022.
