Would you like to know how many kilometres of bike lanes we have in Ottawa?  How many VeloGO bikes have been rented out? How many people actually cycle in Ottawa? Which events were organised? How many OC Transpo buses have bike racks? Which places should make a top 10 of improvements? Which infrastructure is being added? Which events are being held? What we think of the results of our recommendations?

This is the place to start. Since 2011 our dedicated volunteers have been producing an annual Report on Bicycling. We pull data from the City of Ottawa's open data, OC Transpo, the National Capital Commission (a federal organisation), bike counters and from simply observing and asking a lot of people to share their information. The report gives you a good overview of the improvements in Ottawa.

Why are we doing this?

Because no one else does. Each bureaucracy in Ottawa does its own thing, and there is not always an overall coordination of all activities in the region.

This resulted in the annual Ottawa Report on Bicycling: the only complete annual overview of cycling in Ottawa.
