Cycle Safety Is On

I’m no expert when it comes to cycling but I do see things I question on the roads some days.

Like, why aren’t you wearing a helmet?  Are you supposed to follow the pedestrian or vehicle rules or your own?  Or why didn’t you pay attention?

If you have any of these questions or more then take note for this weekend.

It’s a Cycling Safety  Event on Sunday on the Trans Canada Trail in Stittsville and Kanata.

Ottawa Police Service and Safer Roads Ottawa are holding education and awareness initiatives with the focus being to review the safest ways for cyclists and pedestrians to share the paths, including how to pass other cyclists and pedestrians, visibility, speeding and having proper equipment and more.

Officers will be on hand with ATV’s to show and tell what it’s like to patrol on trails and and off-road conditions.  Safer Roads Ottawa will also be available for questions or concerns as well.

This event happens Sunday 10am-Noon near Abbott Street and West Ridge Drive in Stittsville and 12:15 to 1:15 at Shetland Park in Kanata.
