This here is a PSA: The City of Ottawa's holding a series of public discussions about the downtown segregated bike lane proposal, June 7, 8, 10, and 14. They're in various locations around town, usually around 6:30.
"The City of Ottawa has initiated a pilot project for the identification of an east-west downtown segregated bike facility within the area bounded by Elgin Street, Preston Street, the Ottawa River and Highway 417. The bicycle facility is intended to be installed for a minimum of one-year on the selected corridor and it is being planned to be maintained throughout the winter months. The intent of this undertaking is to develop a recommended plan to provide a safe, fully segregated bike facility that better connects cycling facilities through the downtown."
I'll try and make it to one of these and report in! Next Monday, I think, in fact.
Oh, and happy Bike Month!
