Cyclists demanding bike lanes be added to a main commercial and commuting corridor have taken their battle to the streets of Windsor.

Bike-safety advocates have been calling for bike lanes on Wyandotte Street East, but so far have not had any traction at city hall.

The city's transportation committee favours a route that zigzags down to South National Street, instead of providing a direct route between George Avenue and Vernon Crescent.

To draw attention to their cause, dozens of cyclists gathered for a slow ride protest along Wyandotte Street as they head toward city hall, where the bike-lane issue will be discussed by city council.
