A Gatineau man who's been using his all-terrain vehicle to keep local bike paths clear of snow has been ordered to hit the brakes, at least for now.

For the past few years, Michel Mayer has been voluntarily plowing the paths in the Limbour neighbourhood, clearing the way for cyclists and students at nearby schools.

He said he got the ATV to do some landscaping work during his retirement, but soon started clearing snow and ice from pathways because he wanted to help.
