Beacon Hill-Cyrville no longer cycling ‘black hole,’ councillor says
Ottawa Citizen

By Matthew Pearson, Ottawa Citizen, July 23, 2017

With new bike lanes coming to three different roads in the span of three years, Coun. Tim Tierney says his east-end ward is no longer the “black hole” of Ottawa’s cycling network.

There was very little cycling infrastructure in Beacon Hill-Cyrville before he was elected in 2010, Tierney says, and there were several missing links in the network that left some cyclists and would-be cyclists feeling unsafe.

On Ogilvie Road, for example, there are painted-on bike lanes in each direction between St. Laurent Boulevard and Blair Road.
