Share the Road Cycling Coalition wants to hear from you

Share the Road Cycling Coalition
Building a bicycle-friendly Ontario

You can help move cycling forward by taking part in two important online surveys
We want to hear from you this month and there are two important ways for you to share your insights on cycling; (1) commenting on the Ministry of Transportation's Discussion Paper regarding commuter cycling and the Climate Change Action Plan, and (2) participating in Share the Road's stakeholder survey. This edition of our newsletter includes details on how you can participate in both. It also includes Share the Road's draft "Status Update on CycleON Action Plan 1.0", which recaps each of the 28 actions outlined in the first CycleON Action Plan.

As the days get shorter and the weather a little cooler, people across the province may be thinking about putting their bikes into storage, but cycling remains actively on the agenda. So much so, that you will be receiving two newsletters from us this month (it will be worth it, stick with us).  Check out the details below and watch for our upcoming Ontario Bike Summit Call for Proposals.

What's Happening - Your Input is Needed

Provincial Feedback

Stakeholder Survey
We have launched an online stakeholder survey to inform our advocacy priorities and recommendations for CycleON Action Plan 2.0. We absolutely need to hear from you. Please take 20 minutes and share your insights.
