Thank you to all our volunteers for coming out to the RU Bike Community Mapping event!
Participants were able to walk throughout the streets of New Brunswick and collect survey data pertaining to biking conditions. Based on the data collected, participants ranked the poorly surfaced streets as the main deterrent to maintaining a bike-friendly city. They suggested the addition of bike lanes and removing obstructions as primary ways to reduce this hazard. They also noted the danger of reckless drivers and suggested an increase in traffic regulation. Finally, a lack of proper signage was identified as being a hazard for bikers, which could be improved by adding clear and visible signage throughout the city.
