Support Cadboro Bay Rd bike lanes

Support Cadboro Bay Rd bike lanes

We need your voice to help add bike lanes on Cadboro Bay Rd. Oak Bay has just started public consultation on a new lane that will run from Foul Bay Rd to Bowker Ave. Of the two options, Option 1 with partial protection is the better one. But neither of these are All Ages and Abilities, but there is still time to tell council that you support the lanes and push them to build a AAA bike lane. 

UPDATE: Council unanimously approved Option 2, which is a buffered bike lane outside of parking. We’re happy to see the bike lane move forward

We like Option 1, which adds some protection to the north side, but it will still be a mostly unprotected bike lane. The consultants report (which you can read here) spends more time talking about motor vehicle delay than the bike lane and that doesn’t even line up with Oak Bay’s own OCP, which like Victoria’s, prioritizes those walking, biking and taking transit above those driving. We know it can be better.
