Cyclists want city to plow bike lane by U.S. Embassy

By Matthew Kupfer, CBC News Ottawa, December 20, 2017

Cyclists who use the Mackenzie Avenue bike lane are being forced into the street and onto the sidewalk because the stretch in front of the U.S. Embassy is not being plowed.

In a half-hour period during the Tuesday evening rush hour, more than a half dozen cyclists detoured around the bollard-lined bike lane which is blanketed in several centimetres of snow, while the track leading up to it was recently plowed.

Marie-Claude Lacombe uses the two-way cycle track for her daily commute from Elmdale Acres to her workplace in Gatineau.
