Tonight is the regular meeting of the @CityofLdnOnt Cycling Advisory Committee. Here's the agenda:
1 - Accessibility. Have many thoughts here about our transportation system.
2- Dundas Place connection to TVP. How do we connect a street so anti-bike to our best path?

Alright, #LdnOntBike time for *another* round of feedback on the East Village Protected Bike Lane. Do we do this level of consultation for any other projects? Anyway, here's the link...

This survey is a little better than the commuter survey. Here are the things we'd like to see:
Project Considerations: ranked public realm and loading zones above the line. commented that creating a great space is more important than moving cars fast.
For "Design elements" - I marked the intersections and said "protected intersection please", and made a general comment that both ends at Wellington and Adelaide need comfortable transitions for cyclists.

@CityofLdnOnt 1. First on agenda was a report on the London Road Safety Strategy. The LRSS was a city program from 2014-19 designed to decrease traffic deaths and injuries, which is indeed a noble goal. The results we saw tonight didn't give me any confidence that streets are any safer.

OK, #LdnOntBike, we're maturing as a cycling city, so I've been thinking a lot about what we need in our store to meet that demand. Who's ready for a sneak preview of our amazing new City Bikes for 2020?
OK, this is pretty unanimous... here goes.

We're going to carry two models in-stock (we'll get to those), but have access to their whole catalog by special order. They have an incredible selection of drool-worthy bikes with options like Pinion gearboxes, belt-drive systems, and more!

Alright, time for monthly update. We had an enormously long CAC meeting, and it was incredibly important. Tonight we made #LdnOnt's first Climate Emergency recommendations, based on sound science, and existing City policies. Long thread ahead 🧡 2/n
First, I'm totally drained, and holding a sleeping baby, so please forgive any typographical errors or interruptions in story flow... I'll get this done before midnight, probably. 3/n

Alright, finally have some time to wrap up what went down at Cycling Advisory Committee this month (Wednesday Sept 18 meeting). It was a "fun-filled" evening as you may have seen in the news over the past couple day... here we go πŸ‘‡πŸš²
First item on agenda was a staff report from Transportation and Parks showing planned developments over the next four years. It largely follows London ON Bikes plan (available here london.ca/residents/Envi…), and contained no surprises. 2/n
We also received an update that the Cycling Master Plan is up for review and update this fall. We struck a working group to review the CMP which will report back next month. 3/n
