Cycling in London
The City of London is experiencing a groundswell of support and demand for cycling infrastructure. This is supported by a newly formed Cycling Advisory Committee, cycling community groups and the recently completed Transportation Master Plan. London has a great history of progress in active transportation. From the initial development of the Thames Valley Parkway and implementation of arterial road boulevard bike paths in the 1980s to arterial road bike lanes and hundreds of kilometres of recreational pathways constructed as of 2014. The current Cycling Master Plan is over 10 years old and it’s time for a new plan!
What does London ON Bikes mean for London?
- Identify needs
- Review existing policies and maintenance practices
- Balance the requirements of all cyclists in the community, including all ages and abilities.
- Review and set priorities
- Reflect both the existing and planned land use, urban form and transportation contexts
- Compliment current plans
The foundations for the Cycling Master Plan were set through the Smart Moves London 2030 Transportation Master Plan, the existing 2005 Bicycle Master Plan, the 2009 Parks & Recreation Master Plan and the London Plan (draft).
London ON Bikes is not only about identifying short, medium, and long term capital implementation projects, it is also about policy, education, enforcement, facility types and routes, maintenance, as well as integration with existing and proposed multi-use paths and trail systems.
London ON Bikes starts with an Environmental Assessment (EA) – a public process that provides all citizens with an opportunity to have input into the planning and design of a cycling network.
The Cycling Master Plan will be conducted in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process, which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. The study will prepare a Master Plan for cycling in accordance with Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class EA process.
How You Can Get Involved
The public is encouraged to participate in our community engagement by attending the Public Information Centres (PIC's) to start the conversation on the Cycling Master Plan and to provide your input over the course of the study.
