It looks like the City of Gatineau has hired a “bike route co-ordinator” (the name of the person is suppose to be released in 2 weeks).
According to a report in the Ottawa Citizen, the co-ordinator will be responsible for “overseeing the city’s existing cycling network plan, as well as other measures in order to reduce the number of cars on the roads”.
The city has budgeted $200,000 for this position for the initial two-year period.
Gatineau likes to bill itself as “Ville Vélo” (Bicycle City), and has been investing in its cycling infrastructure over the past couple of years. It currently has close to 290 kilometres of pathways and bicycle paths and wants to establish itself as one of the great cycling cities in Quebec.Share this with others:
