How Ottawa's Cycling Network is Starting to Take Shape
'Joy' copper sculpture on Sparks Street Sculptor: Bruce Garner, 1970
This walk will focus on the experience of cycling in Ottawa, how things have changed with the introduction of new bike routes, and how things could be improved for cyclists and their interaction with other traffic. Along the way Hans will point out new bike infrastructure, and will discuss the theories of safe cycling infrastructure and networks, and what else is needed to make cycling an enjoyable experience for as many people as possible. We'll throw in some history, some numbers, and some of Hans' experiences as an Ottawa bicycle tour guide.
We will do this tour on foot so people who don't bike can join us for the tour.
