Text of the Petition:
I strongly support the development of an effective network of cycling lanes, including segregated lanes, and pathways, to make cycling in Ottawa more inclusive of those who prefer or need a degree of separation from motorized traffic. I ask City Council to allocate sufficient funds to the Ottawa Cycling Plan for this purpose.

Many of us believe that an effective network of bike lanes, segregated
lanes, and pathways is needed in Ottawa to help current cyclists cycle
more. Better infrastructure could also 'fuel' the latent demand to
lift cycling to a greater role in transportation within the city.

We must convince City councillors it's important to create this
effective network. A good start is a petition. It must have the
support of a great many citizens to have an impact.

It takes less than a minute to take action.

PS: Every e-mail you send has the power to multiply your effort for
more cycling lanes in Ottawa. Please forward this message to your
friends asking them to sign the petition at:
