Ottawa by bike
In the center of Ottawa, the mode share for biking is 6 percent, compared to the Canadian average of 2 percent. New infrastructure is being built including a bike and pedestrian bridge, which will enable cyclists to cross over a busy parkway to reach shopping and other neighborhoods.
Mobycon CEO Johan Diepens and Senior Consultant Angela van der Kloof visited Ottawa in November 2012 to give a Kickstand Session, bicycle planning master class with partner, Copenhagenize Design Co. Their advice was recently featured in a magazine article appearing in Healthwise Ottawa.
Kickstand Sessions are two-day workshops tailored to the local community and focused on planning, policy, marketing and culture with the goal of creating more liveable communities.
