Steam Whistle - Do One Thing Really, Really Well

Ontario Bike Summit

Steam Whistle supports the Ontario Bike Summit 2013.

The Share the Road Cycling Coalition invites you to join us at the Ontario Bike Summit on May 28th-29th at the Hyatt Regency Toronto.

This promises to be our best Summit ever. 2012 was an exciting year for our province with many positive developments – clear signals that our provincial government is engaged in the cycling conversation in a much bigger way. These include the Ontario Coroner’s Review of Cycling Deaths (June 2012) and the release of the Ontario Bicycle Strategy (November 2012) – the first public policy update for cycling in 20 years and the first step towards a new Ontario Bicycle Policy.

Share the Road was a member of the Coroner’s Review panel and has been the leading proponent for a new Ontario Bicycle Policy since 2009.

Working together with stakeholders and partners across the province has made this all possible – but our work is in many ways just beginning. If we are to be successful, we will need to work closely together in the weeks and months ahead – and the Summit presents an ideal opportunity to strategize and discuss how best to move forward.

Opportunities such as the 2015 Pan Am Games, a new Premier and Cabinet – and likely corresponding changes in the Opposition critical roles lie ahead. New relationships will be forged, and old ones leveraged as we continue to navigate Queen’s Park and secure the province’s participation in the burgeoning interest in cycling across Ontario. Our Summit Queen’s Park lobby day and reception will provide plenty of opportunities for discussion!

But we need you – to attend the Summit, to engage in the conversation locally as so many of you are, and to work with us as we all strive for more Bicycle Friendly Communities in a Bicycle Friendly Ontario!

We look forward to seeing you at the Summit.
