Cyclists massing forces for Courtenay council meeting

The Comox Valley Cycling Coalition will appeal to Courtenay Council next Tuesday (Sept. 6) to make cycling infrastructure improvements a priority.

The group plans to ask council to have a pedestrian/cycling bridge built over the Courtenay River next summer.

The proposed bridge — envisioned to be the hub of an extensive cycling network covering the entire Valley — would be located between the foot of Sixth Street and Simms Millennium Park.

The coalition urges as many people as possible to attend the meeting to show council the public supports investment into cycling and walking to reduce the number of vehicles on the roads.

E-mail edschum@shaw.ca for more information.

Council meets at 4 p.m.
