Time to ride: Creating a welcoming cycling network for everyone in Victoria
Time to ride: Creating a welcoming cycling network for everyone in Victoria was held on May 29, 2014 in Victoria, BC and was aimed at soliciting feedback from non-cyclists on how the City of Victoria could better provide infrastructure and programs for potential bicycle commuters. A multi-modal transportation system benefits everyone through more affordable transportation options, lower emissions, cleaner air, and less congestion. Furthermore, public engagement is crucial for designing and planning municipal transportation networks. This dialogue was held in parallel with City of Victoria workshops for cyclists and will feed into the City of Victoria's new Bicycle Master Plan
The dialogue was designed to answer the following key questions:
- How can Victoria improve its cycling infrastructure?
- Which barriers prevent residents from cycling?
- How can a welcoming cycling network be created in Victoria?
The Dialogue Report outlines the discussion and outcomes from the dialogue, download below:
