What a gorgeous day it was yesterday. Not only was it the start of the 45th year of Ottawa's NCC Sunday bike days (from May till September, every Sunday), it was also MEC's annual bike fest. If you had followed the #ottbike hashtag on Twitter, you would have seen a lot of happy pictures rolling in over the course of the day.

This year, Spring.Bike.Ottawa brought out just short of 90 community members on a damp, snowy first day of spring, including city Councillors Catherine McKenney, Jeff Leiper, and David Chernushenko; MPP Yasir Naqvi and MP Paul Dewar. Some of our counterparts from Cycle Toronto also made the trip to learn about CfSC’s work.
Today, Citizens for Safe Cycling released our 4th annual Report on Bicycling. The report gives an overview of the state of cycling in the Nation's capital.
