Numerous studies show that walking and cycling create livable communities, promote healthy lifestyles and save more of our nature. It also increases human interaction in our communities. While walking or cycling in our neighbourhood, we can make contact much easier from the seat of bicycle or from the sidewalk in front of the lawn than from the closed environment of a car.

Fortunately cycling is growing in Ontario, but more residents can be convinced to integrate Active Transportation into their daily life by making cycling and walking more convenient. Too often, Active Transportation is still often an exercise in challenges and overcoming barriers.

Ottawa studies show that a considerable number of residents in suburban areas would love to cycle more, but are nervous about the safety on our roads.
