It's summertime, which means that people are happily pedaling outside on their bicycles. To celebrate Ottawa's great cycling culture here are some bike-related posts from area bloggers.
Citizens for Safe Cycling (CSC) celebrate the 40,000 bicycle that was parked at Bluesfest. In a second post, the CSC blog notes marking mistakes on the bicycle lane near the Museum of Civilization
Modal Mom has a long post on the debate at City Council to convert Main street into a complete street. "Main Street is one of the first major street reconstructions in Ottawa where the preferred design includes a segregated cycletrack, an upgrade to standard width sidewalks and a reduced vehicle lane capacity in the rush hours to prevent rampant speeding in the off-peak hours," the post begins, before offering a detailed overview of the recent debate on the proposed project that took place at the city's Transportation Committee.
Finally, Green Living Ottawa has some links for different bike-related info in our city. While the aim of the post was to advertise a new documentary called Bike City, Great City, which was screened earlier this week at the Mayfair Theatre, the post is still worth reading for its links.
