More people cycling, more places, more often

Oh, happy day- the Biketoria plan was APPROVED!

Oh, happy day- the Biketoria plan was APPROVED!

In a unanimous decision yesterday, the Victoria City Council approved the Biketoria plan. The City committed to building eight protected bike lanes, making it easier for people of all ages and abilities to get on their bikes and ride. Phase 1 should be constructed by 2018. You can read more about the plan and its designs here.

The GVCC would like to thank Victoria City Council for taking people on bikes into account in city design. Also thanks to City staff and the #Biketoria consultant team – it took many months of work to get to this point. If you’d like to know what the GVCC has to say about the planned routes, you can read about it here.

Thanks to everyone who signed our petition, wrote letters to City Council, and spoke at Council meetings in support of the plan. The work isn’t over, but this was a critical step!

  1. I will love for the city to build a network of protected bike lanes, bike ways and more bike racks!
