Busy Bike Week

Next week will see two interesting guest speakers in Ottawa on the topic of improving cycling facilities. Both speakers are highly credible experienced individuals with real-world accomplishments.

On Monday, CycleVision Ottawa presents Suzanne Lareau (see poster below) and on Tuesday CfSC presents the cycling coordinator from Portland OR. Portland has a much-lauded cycling network.  Tuesday's meeting is 6pm at TomBrown Arena (right along the proposed BikeWest route!).

Catch the Montreal Cycling Wave!

Why you should come:

Discover the vélo culture of Montréal and its great network of

segregated bike lanes. Suzanne Lareau will show how

Montreal is achieving a cycling transformation. Ms Lareau is

a founding team member of Tour de l'Ile, the annual bike ride

on the streets of Montreal that attracts some 30,000 cyclists.

She heads Velo-Quebec, one of the largest cycling

organizations in the world with 80 paid staff.
