The city and its light-rail contractor have had to be stopped from cutting one of Ottawa’s showpiece bike routes.

The path runs from the Ottawa River to Carling Avenue, parallel to Preston Street, and it’s one of Ottawa’s bike triumphs. In the last four years, we spent several million dollars upgrading it from the muddy, bumpy track it used to be, adding safe crossings of the east-west roads and even separate tracks for cyclists and pedestrians in busy spots.
