Ottawa scores high in the 2022 People for Bikes annual bike network ratings. Where can we further improve? The ratings show that, compared with Montreal, we have to invest more in access to neighbourhoods and transit hubs.
Last fall, Woodroffe Ave in Ottawa got a 700 meter MUP on the west side, between Norice and (roughly) Baseline Station. But will it remain open? I am not so sure…

With the reconstruction of Albert St near the new library and the already opened NCC pathways on LeBreton Flats, a new promising cycling route to downtown may open up.
The National Capital Commission opened two new multi use pathways on Lebreton flats. The NCC introduced a stretch of 4 meter (12 ft) wide pathways and part of the pathways has a separation between cycling and walking. You’ll be cycling, walking or skiing (indeed, skiing) along LRT, a heritage aqueduct and historic bridges. Taking LRT to the Kichi Sibi ski trails is now easier than ever.
