As usual, the week after the clocks fall back, we’ll be partnering with Safer Roads Ottawa to encourage cyclists to light themselves up while biking outside the diminishing daylight hours. The Highway Traffic Act requires that all cyclists have a working front light and rear reflector.
It’s the time of year for our Annual General Meeting and autumn bike social! Join us to mix and mingle with fellow Ottawa cyclists over food and drink, hear from some great speakers, and—for Bike Ottawa members—participate in the official business of our AGM.
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.
