Winnipeg cyclists clearing snow from St. Boniface trail
Some Winnipeg cyclists and pedestrians don't think the city has been keeping up with snow clearing, so they're tackling the job themselves.
The trail is a critical route linking St. Boniface to Elmwood and Transcona, but snow hasn't been cleared from it and other commuter cycling and walking routes so far this winter, according to the group.
Winnipeg is hosting the 2014 International Winter Cycling Congress, an active transportation conference, starting Wednesday.
Cohoe said his group wants better road and bike path clearing, as that would help people cycle year-round.
"We know that preventative health care and getting people to play active will save the province a lot of money. It's also something that will help with congestion in the city," he said.
Cohoe said Bike Winnipeg also wants to see the city implement a notification system that would inform cyclists of road conditions, much like Manitoba's highway conditions report.
