Rotary Duck Race, Sunday July 31, input MR/PM cycling plan
The Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows Bicycle Advisory Committee will have a table at Sunday’s Rotary Duck Race between 10 am and 3 pm. There will be draft bicycle maps, with routes and potential destinations for cyclists. The BAC would like people to drop by and let them know where they would like to cycle. The cycling map is updated as part of the Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows Bikeways Plan 2011. This is the first time that the plan is updated since 1994, and much has changed since then. Hopefully the new plan will reflect the many recent developments in Metro Vancouver, including the realization that many people do not feel comfortable cycling with traffic. Cycling courses will help those who are less confident on their bikes to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate our roads safely, but most importantly, our communities need to focus much more on building infrastructure that is safe for cyclists of all ages and abilities.
