I would like to bring to your attention some recent developments in the Province regarding the release of the Ontario Cycling Strategy.
The new strategy outlines a number of potential ideas for making cycling safer in the Province of Ontario, as well as increasing connectivity to provide new opportunities for cyclists.
As the document is far from a finished product, I would encourage you to take the time to comment on this proposed strategy. Feedback on the new strategy is being accepted up until January 29, and is an important aspect of the drafting process . This input will help the province to put forward a new cycling strategy that best meets the needs of Ontarians, and will be most effective at making cycling safer and more enjoyable in the Province of Ontario.
