Protected Bike Lanes on King Street – May 29th Public Consultation

Today, we have an opportunity to make our voices heard in support of protected bike lanes on King Street. We have an unique opportunity to create a community that’s bikable for cyclists age 8-80.

Since December 2013 over 1000 of us signed a petition asking for protected bike lanes, now we need to continue to show our support to ensure the city and region approves plans for these protected bike lanes on King Street.

Join us on a bike ride to the public consultation. We are leaving Kitchener City Hall at 5.30pm to cycle up King Street thru Uptown Waterloo, to remind ourselves how important this project is to our community. For details on the ride refer to following facebook event.

Further resources: (@mikeboos) created a fantastic infographic specific to Uptown Waterloo. Two of us even delivered 50 hardcopies to businesses north of the tracks.

  1. Protected bike lanes have transformed downtown Montreal. I lived here 25 years ago, and on a visit to Montreal, I notice how the new protected bike lanes on key routes (Avenue de Maisonneuve, for example) have transformed the street. New businesses have opened up, and the entire area is a lot more pedestrian friendly and walkable than it used to be. Good news for the many businesses, university students and residents who live in down town Montreal. Lots of great examples that could be used in waterloo. Does Montreal have a catalogue of traffic calming and bike lane design features? Would be great to explore this…

  2. How did this go? Are the prospects positive?
    I’m watching with interest from Calgary!
