“I’ve seen other cities, and Mount Vernon is one of the best for bicycling I’ve seen. There are a lot of places to get out of traffic.”

Eric Stump, Mount Vernon

“I just ride on the bike paths so I don’t have to worry about cars. Maybe something like designated bike lanes would help.”

Traci Cassell, Mount Vernon

“The intersections with streets can be hard to cross. I’d like to see more helmet usage and people need to wear bright colors.

Makayla Lynch, Mount Vernon Nazarene student.

“People should wear florescent clothing and use signals. They should also know the rules of the road better.”

Tyler Leonhart, MVNU student.

“I tend to stick to the bike paths, but the crossing here (at Ohio 13) is a big improvement. People shouldn’t wear ear pieces. I got knocked off my bike because a guy couldn’t hear me.”

Dwight Eblin, Centerburg

“The Mount Vernon Road crossing is a problem, but I like how the trails are connected now. I can get a nice long ride.”

Mike Kassinger, Lakeville
