Spring is in the air, and that means (more) cycling!
Citizens for Safe Cycling is hosting Spring. Bike. Ottawa on Saturday, Mar. 21, 2015. It’s an opportunity to get together with other cyclists, and find out what’s happening locally and provincially that affects biking.
The event includes a panel discussion with Schuyler Playford, CfSC director, on CfSC’s work and recommended cycling priorities; Jamie Stuckless, Share the Road Cycling Coalition, on Ontario’s cycling strategy; and Nicole LaViolette, lawyer and author, about laws in Canada that affect cycling. Other speakers include Glenn Gobuyan of PIXO design, on wayfinding, and Trevor Hache on the Healthy Transportation Coalition in Ottawa.
RightBike, Ottawa Bicycle Lanes Project, EnviroCentre and Ottawa Centre Eco-District will also be on hand. There’ll be refreshments from Bridgehead Coffee and Branch Out Bakery, too. Lots of good reasons to come out!
Bring your unused bikes for Cycle Salvation to refurbish for RightBike’s bike share.
Spring. Bike. Ottawa happens at McNabb Community Centre (180 Percy St.), 1-4 p.m. See https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/ottawas-bike-social-springbikeottawa-mapping-change-tickets-16029473587 for details and to register.
