Nice change to not have to worry about what cars are doing

Dear editor,
Re: Have Your Say (Go roller blade on your own).
Car Free Sunday was a wonderful community event for myself and my family to attend.

A mother cycles on Fifth Street in downtown Courtenay without having to worry about motorized traffic.

Dear editor,Re: Have Your Say (Go roller blade on your own).Car Free Sunday was a wonderful community event for myself and my family to attend.What a great way to get out with family and friends, to connect with people while being active and to have fun downtown  on a Sunday. This was a vibrant event attended by many smiling people.I am a regular bike commuter and deal with making sure my daily road biking results in arriving safely home. It was a true pleasure to be able to ride my streets today without one concern about what the cars are doing. (I am also a taxpayer, and had the pleasure to use the streets that I contribute to in this way.)The other deep pleasure was to see my children and their friends out exploring their community by biking around the loop ahead of all the parents. This was the one day they could bike safely downtown, and they loved it!One way to encourage strong and healthy youth is to spend time as a family being active. Car Free Sunday allowed for this to happen while also connecting with community.Car Free Sunday was a total success and I wish to say thanks to Courtenay for supporting it, and all the volunteers who made it happen. I hope it can happen regularly from here on!Liz Girard,Courtenay
