New Provincial Cycling Strategy Draft Is Underwhelming

 

The Ministry of Transportation has released a draft cycling strategy [PDF], the first update to its cycling policy goals in 20 years. The proposed new strategy aims to improve cycling education, infrastructure, legislation, and interest—but it has received mixed reviews from the cycling community, and for good reason.

Let’s start with some with some facts, as stated in the strategy. Ontario has 630,000 cyclists who hop on a bike daily. Nearly 48 per cent of Ontario residents ride a bike at least once during spring, summer, and autumn. About 50 per cent of those 630,000 daily cyclists use cycling as their main mode of transportation, meaning they use two wheels to get to school, work, shopping, errands, or friends’ homes. The draft doesn’t say where these cyclists are, but we’d guess a lot of them are here in Toronto.
