Espanola Commuter Cycle Plan Wheels Out for Bike Month

Community engagement is at the crux of Espanola‚Äôs Commuter Cycle Plan.  The community is being called upon to help build the framework to develop an active transportation network to improve cycling infrastructure, trail identification, signage and cycling amenities.

Bike month will kick off in Espanola with a public bike tour on Friday June 1st at both 1pm and/or 6pm with the consulting team from Share the Road Cycling Coalition & Liem Strategic Integration for a guided 90 minute, family friendly ride around Espanola.  The public bike tour will begin at the Town Office and end at the Recreation Complex for refreshments and an exchange on what participants view as the opportunities and challenges for cyclists in Espanola.

Oraclepoll will also begin a telephone survey the week of June 1st to garner community input for the plan and the community is also invited to participate in an online survey at bit.ly/EspBikeSurvey.  The month will wrap up on June 27th with a Stakeholder Consultation Workshop and a Community Consultation Session.

The community is encouraged to register for the pubic bike tour and community engagement sessions.  For registration links and more information click here.
