Looking back, looking forward at 150: Spring will be here before you know it, and as has become tradition we look forward to ringing it in with our Spring.Bike.Ottawa symposium and social.
Join us for our sixth annual Winter Bike Parade! This event brings together Ottawa cyclists who don’t let winter get in the way of their transportation, and gives an opportunity to highlight the best of winter cycling infrastructure in Ottawa… as well as some areas where improvements are needed.
On November 8th, we teamed up with Safer Roads Ottawa to hand out approximately 650 pairs of lights to cyclists who weren’t equipped for biking in the dark after the clocks turned back.
Just after the clocks turn back, we’ll be partnering with Safer Roads Ottawa again this year to raise awareness and encourage cyclists to light themselves up while cycling in the early evening and at night.
What a fantastic turnout at our 2016 AGM! Not only did we have the largest ever number of members and guests in attendance (nearly 150), but we also had more members of city council join us than ever before, along with Mayor Jim Watson.
Our AGM is an opportunity to mix and mingle with fellow cyclists, learn about hot topics related to safer cycling and infrastructure, and find out what Citizens for Safe Cycling (CfsC) has been up to over the past year as well as upcoming plans.
Join us for an easy ride around the Craig Henry/Centrepointe community and a chance to explore the neighbourhood’s bikeable routes and destinations.
Monday May 30 was Bike Day in Canada, a nationwide celebration of cycling. Here in Ottawa, we were lucky to be able to attend “Bike Day on the Hill”.
This year our Tulips on Two Wheels event will take place on Saturday, May 21st from 11am-2pm. Find CfSC volunteers in the same location as last year: along the canal at Queen Elizabeth Drive and Fifth Avenue, beside the Canal Ritz Restaurant.
CfSC is proud to be joining forces with Ecology Ottawa and a number of other partners to present an evening with Janette Sadik-Kahn, former Transportation Commissioner of New York City and author of Streetfight: Handbook for an Urban Revolution.
