    Thank you for fixing the east side sidewalk ramps. Before the intersection improvement these were rough and required swerving to navigate.

    Yankovich is a thruway for fast moving cars and bikers. The complete lack of shoulders and low visibility from the hills makes biking commuting from there very scary.
    A good start was made. Please complete with widened shoulders or connected biked lane.

    The farmers loop path is an excellent example of non-motorized improvement being integrated into the overall road system upgrade. Thank you. Especially appreciate the evening out so no longer need to go up and down for the driveways - improves efficiency and visibility.

    The Miller Hill bike path was a great idea, but not completing the pavement makes it dangerous. The pavement break right at the fastest point of the downhill is scary. It motivates bikes to use the road, which defeats the intended safety improvement.

    This narrow blind corner is treacherous. Particularly so for bikes with all the loose gravel that accumulates.

    This neighborhood connection and under bridge path is very useful. Plus it helps avoid the challenge and discomfort of Chena Pump.
    Thank you!

    Pedee road needs a bike path. Fast moving cars, bikes, walkers, and ATV's all use the road and it's quite busy, especially during the summer.

    Need signed bike route downtown, North on Lacey and south on Barnett’s.

    Need bike lanes that connect to Johansen path, which could connect to University bike lanes.

    The sidewalk on the south side of the road is rough on a bike. Riding the road was much better.

    A bike/walking path that went along the Richardson Highway from Fairbanks to North Pole would be amazing!

    Many more bike racks are needed downtown and really all over. In places that are out in the open and where bikes are least likely to get stolen or vandalized.

    The Farmer's Loop path is amazing and gets used a lot. I would love to see it have regular sweeping in the summer to keep it clear of gravel. And it would be so nice if the entire thing was kept plowed in the winter.

    A bike/walking path that went all the way along Ballaine Road would be nice. Also one that went the entire distance of Goldstream Road and then connected to paths on each end is really needed

    I would love to see a bike/walking path that goes the entire way around Chena Ridge Road and connects to the existing paths on either end.

    I love having the ability to hop on a bike path right from my neighborhood and bike all the way into town!

    I would love to bike to my office downtown more often, but there are three main deterrents for me:
    1) Unclear bike rules downtown. Am I allowed to ride on sidewalks? Am I supposed to ride in the street?
    2) Lack of places to securely lock up my bike. Are there bike racks downtown? How do I locate them? Are they in high-visibility areas where bikes are less likely to get stolen or vandalized?
    3) Lack of shower facilities. If there was a gym downtown where I could shower before heading into the office, I would have a lot more days when I could bike. As it stands, I can't afford to get too sweaty, so hot days are out as well as any days when I have important meetings.

    Residents of this neighborhood could easily walk to the Farmer's Market - reducing traffic congestion and increasing access to fresh food. However, crossing College at this point requires taking your life into your own hands. Many cars speed through here, cars are turning in and out of businesses, and the timing of the stoplights cause alternating blocks of cars to enter the area just as it starts to look like a good opportunity to cross. The nearest stoplight with a crosswalk is a mile in each direction (University or Aurora). I think a pedestrian-activated crosswalk here would improve access and reduce risks.

    The path from College to almost Wembley is pretty rough due breaks in the pavement

    There are often cyclists on the highway through this area, from University to Geist. It would be nice to improve access to the bike routes, so the path wasn’t longer around boat street and lots more signage directing bike traffic off the highway to the corresponding bike routes and access.

    Peger is a barrier to connecting paths to the east and west on the south side of the river. The underpass floods, and overland routes require significant detours to safe crosswalks.

    The sidewalk along University is terrible for cyclists. It is narrow, especially across the bridge, and at intersections with side roads, it forces a cyclist to swerve in order to negotiate the ramps.

    This intersection is terrible for non-motorized traffic. The sidewalks leading to the intersection are unsafe due to a lot of unregulated right turn crossings liable to cause right-hook collisions, at some corners there is no crosswalk, and the pedestrian signal trigger is heavily biased toward motorized vehicle traffic such that non-motorized traffic often must wait through two signals in order to cross.
