Release of our 2017 Ottawa Report on Bicycling

BikeOttawa is proud to announce the release of our 2017 Ottawa Report on Bicycling. This year, our report reflects the excitement of 2017—marking a milestone 150th for Canada, and a promising year for enjoying and continuing to improve cycling in our capital.

Bob Forbes of Action Sandy Hill captured this year’s cover photo, featuring the new advisory bike lanes on Someset Street East.

We take a look at what we’ve done well, opportunities to do better, and highlight cycling data trends as well as stories from everyday cyclists in our city.
