The number of people choosing to cycle to work, to school, for errands and for recreation continues to grow every year in Ottawa, across the city.
Data counters on the city’s first segregated bike lane installed on Laurier Avenue in 2011 have already recorded over 3 million trips. The numbers continue to increase as residents and visitors enjoy Ottawa’s network of on- and off-street routes.
The Ottawa Cycling Plan 2013 Vision is to:
Develop a city-wide, connected network of cycling facilities actively used by all types and ages of cyclists to meet their transportation needs. This network will be supported by policies and programs that establish Ottawa as having one of the best cycling networks in North America, while maximizing the synergy of transit and cycling. Cycling facilities will be selected to complement local land uses and match the needs of all areas of the city.
