I think these bike lanes are ridiculous!!! What happens the 7 months you can't ride a bike?!?!
4Estelle Tayler Andersen
5sue Wilkinson
We live in a climate that allows for biking only 4 months of the year. The bike lanes just don't make sense.
6David Wilkinson
Bike lanes make sense on wider nonresidential streets but not all over the place.
7Dana Diehl
I think red deer has a brilliant bike path system, why mess up already over congested roads? There's not enough bike traffic to support this!
8Mike Lanz
I have had more near misses in the past two weeks than in the thirteen years I have lived here. I live right downtown and every day on 55th I am almost in an accident now. This is by far the poorest thought out plan Red Deer City Council has come up with!
9Maureen smith
Ridiculous waste of taxpayer money. So say I and my husband.
10Lenora McCrea
Taking away car lanes for bikes is rediculous. Traffic on 40th from Lindsay Thurber to Eastview and farther south is bottle necked and slow. Traffic is cutting through residential areas increasing the traffic and decreasing safety in residential areas.
11Michelle Dubois
Very little research seems to have been done prior to the money being spent as to the effectiveness, safety or location of the bike lanes. Pretty big risk for a "pilot project". Financially irresponsible!
12Francine Womacks
What good are the bike lanes in October to March when you live in Alberta?
13Tammy Holden
14Kristie Bennett
Bike lanes are great....in the right places. Don't take away lanes on busy streets for them please!
15Travis Rasmussen
16Devin Bennett
Bike lanes in school congested areas are very problematic when they take away a lane!
17Megan Darby
Were we as Red Deer city members asked if we thought bikes lanes were an awesome idea: No. Are they being used?: No. Will my kids be using them?:No.
18Ian hunt
It's winter most of the year here, who is going to see those painted lines when there is snow? Why do we need so much rooms for bicycles, this is Red deer not bangkok
19Missy Sharpe
Silly ideas such as these remind me why I was always grumpy with City council.
20Kevin Andersen
I am not a biker, I'm a driver and these bike lanes are seriously inconvenient!
21Maryanne Nonay
Wow... this has been a major wast of money as pointed out we have more non-biking weather than biking weather... too, losing traffic lanes and creating congestion... what were you people thinking of in city council??? Please, make better use of OUR $$$

23Katrina Laszuk
24Shawna Talma Honke
I've watched city bus drivers everyday struggle to turn right at the corner of Ross and 40 Ave. What's going to happen when there is snow rows on these streets?
25Shannon Tetz
26Ryley Bennett
Waste of tax payer money, taking away lanes to make a bike lane is ridiculous not to mention in winter they are completely useless and creates more congestion.
27Jodi McCutcheon
2 lanes down to 1 on major streets....it's just doesn't make any sense!!
28Shauna Gregson
29Donna Knowles

I am a biker and a driver. I would NEVER consider riding my bike in some of the locations that have the bike lanes. Taking away lanes on already congested roads was a bad idea period and now well have to spend money to try and make it somewhat normalagain

Poorly planned.

Zero bikes on 32nd Street, 67th Street, 30th Avenue, Taylor Drive, 19th Street, Ross Street. No major arteries have bike lanes. This is a pilot project - look at a map and stop being hysterical.
37Larissa Adams
The fact the the city of RD removed driving lanes on very busy and congested streets as well as took away residential parking is absolutely ridiculous and a complete waste of tax payers money. So many larger issues in this city. Put our roads back!
38Kellie Matus
Waste of money!!!
39Monica Matson
Way back since at least 1967, when my family moved here, city council at that time and in subsequent years had the fore-sight to develop and extend these roadways as four lanes to accommodate potential growth. How is removing a lane each way a good idea?
40Denise Germain
waste of money, created traffic congestion, making 4lane roads to 2lane roads on a main vein, stupid idea!
41Zach Marples
Another waste of our tax money!
42Matt Lowes
43Samantha Bullerwell
It sucks! Roads are already backed up as it is! You need room for bikers? Make the sidewalks wider!
44Susan Bergquist
Our city is already congested with out bike lanes. What are all the bike paths around Red Deer for? Someone is gonna get killed on those bike lanes, aspecially downtown by the schools. TAKE THEM OUT!!!
45Wade Reis
I have yet to see a biker in any of these new "bike lanes" although I have seen them on the sidewalk 20' away. Who in their right mind would ride in them with the congested traffic let alone take their kids along with them.
46Keila Lunt
You've reduced 2 lanes of traffic to 1 on busy roads that absolutely NEED 2 lanes for TRAFFIC. Where was the awareness campaign so that the City of Red Deer could have made opinions known beforehand, if I had known what was planned I would have voted NO!
47daryl
just stupid
48Courtney Malone
Waste OF MONEY~~
49Dwayne Wilson
What a joke. someone is gonna get killed, the most stupid thing I have seen Red Deer come up with yet, and look at what it cost taxpayers? unreal..
50Matt Kennedy
These bike lanes are absolutely horrible. It was a bad idea and was executed miserably. They've got to go!
