Our election page is hugely popular and generated a lot of interest, both from residents with an interest in cycling("Everyone should read this page as a guide") to residents with no interest in cycling ("Let's put the blame where it belongs, cyclists should pay for their own infrastructure" - for the record, we are suggesting ideas, not blaming anyone).
Kids riding to school, fitness, getting in touch with nature, tourism, local errands, relaxation, family fun… bikes are for everyone. But, do you feel comfortable riding in your own neighbourhood?
The candidates we elect on October 27 will determine how strongly cycling-friendly projects and programs are championed in your community. With calmer streets, more greenspace, and less traffic congestion, bicycling can help make Ottawa a more liveable city.

Around 350,000 bike rides are counted on Laurier Ave every year. The East-West Bikeway is slowly being built. Work on the bike and pedestrian bridge over the Rideau River has started. These are all positive developments for cycling in the city. But there is more than cycling. How would you like to see the city in ten years?
