● Ottawa’s cycling growth rate is the 3rd fastest in the world.

Ottawa’s cycling growth rate is the 3rd fastest in the world according to bicycle trip counters installed in various cities in 17 different countries.

The only cities ahead of Ottawa are Wroclaw in Poland, and San Francisco in the US. The bicycle trip counters in Ottawa indicate that the number of cycling trips have gone up by 44% over the past 5 years.

This interesting tidbit of information is found in the 2016 Ottawa Report on Bicycling (page 12) published by the advocacy group “Citizens for Safe Cycling”. Their annual reports always provide a fascinating insight into the state of cycling in Ottawa and is worth perusing.
