Support Protected Bike Lanes!


Protected Bike LanesThis Thursday, July 24, from 4pm – 8pm, the City of Windsor will be offering an information session on plans for separated bike lanes for Cabana Road.

Please help us ensure the Windsor Loop gets off to a great start by attending this important meeting. If you can’t make it, follow the link to the city site for more information and to FILL OUT A SHORT OPINION FORM. 

Back in March representatives from Bike Friendly attended the first information session that asked residents to choose between a multi-use path (dangerous and requiring 30% off-bike walking) and painted lines on the road. We pushed for separated lanes even though city engineers told us it could not be done. We proved them wrong. Now is our chance to make sure this project is done right – ensuring the safety of all residents whether they’re cycling, walking or driving. 

Finally, just in case you missed it, here’s a link to a short video that shows how Indianapolis has reinvented itself and is reviving its economy through its Cultural Cycle Trail. 

Thanks for your support!

May Bike Friendly Board Meeting!


Ride of SilenceWe’ll have lots to talk about at our Tuesday Evening Board Meeting including the upcoming Tweed Ride, Saturday May 10, and some craziness coming from the City regarding segregated bike paths on the east-west Cabana Road trail.

Our primary focus will be on the upcoming Ride of Silence taking place at 6pm on Wednesday May 21. This is a significant event for us as it honours those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roads. This year we’re planning a ‘Breaking the Silence Afterparty’ at the Willistead Restaurant in Walkerville. Please mark your calendars and invite your friends to join us.

Please note LOCATION CHANGE: Our meeting will commence at 5:30pm Tuesday May 6 at the Willistead Restaurant. As always, everyone is welcome to join us and share their love of cycling.

April Bike Friendly Board Meeting!


Slow Roll Detroit Launches Sunday, March 30.

Slow Roll Detroit Launch Sunday, March 30.

Last week, the City of Windsor hosted a community meeting to get public input on creating a cycle path or multi use  trail on Cabana Road from Walker to the new Parkway. With only two days notice, the meeting took place at the same day and time as the Canadian launch of North American Bike Week. Crazy, we know!

This issue has been moved to the top of our agenda for tomorrow night’s  board meeting. City officials have been invited to attend to provide us with details. Rumour has it that the multi use trail would require walking bikes 30% of the route. Say what?!!

So don’t miss tomorrow’s meeting commencing at 5:30pm at Walkerville Brewery. Everyone is welcome to join us and share their love of cycling. We’ll also be discussing a number of other local cycling initiatives.

Our meetings are friendly and informal, please join us for a pint of Walkerville’s finest and talk bikes.
