Ottawa in the bike lane
Metro Ottawa

Ottawa is fast becoming a bike-happenin’ place.

At least that’s how it appears, with Bike Ottawa enjoying an all-time high in membership as well as record-setting investments for cycling infrastructure from different levels of government.

Bike Ottawa, a volunteer group that promotes safe cycling within the city, now has more than 400 members, a record in its three-plus decades in existence.

Just last year in Ottawa’s 2017 budget, more than $8 million of investments in cycling infrastructure was included through the Community Connectivity Program, the Cycling TMP Cycling Strategic Initiatives, and investments in paved shoulders.
