Contested Streets - A movie night in Port Credit

Well tonight the Town of Port Credit Association in conjunction with Walk and Bike for Life, a non profit group located in Port Credit dedicated to transforming our cities to places where people want to live, play and work from car oriented ones to people oriented, hosted a movie night at Clark Hall to preview the film "Contested Streets: Breaking the Gridlock. The film centred around New York but also examined actions taking place in London, Copenhagen and London.

The movie night and discussion was well received. I think its fabulous that we have community organizations at the grass routes level because only with support from them can Mississauga truly transform itself into a city of livable, walkable, cyclable villages.

I will continue to update this blog as events and dates become publicized.

Happy Cycling!!!!

Hwy 10 - Hurontario Street.

Well last week the Mississauga Cycling Advisory Committee had a discussion about the renewal of Hurontario Street and how the city plans to move people from north to south. It is unclear as to what the city will finally decide but whatever they chose the hope is that a new design of the street will include a safe separated bike lane. I have voiced my concerns that unless the bike lane is separated it will not be used. Lets pray logic persuades city council to make the right decision.

Imagine the picture above with a separated bike would be an amazing step forward!!!!
