Help the Region Help Cyclists

I know many readers of this blog are cyclists. The Region and the University of Waterloo are outfitting cyclists with GPS units so the Region can know where cyclists go, what routes they take and how often they use bike racks on buses. This will help us craft the update to the Cycling Master Plan. The data will be analyzed by UW mapping software. The information will help the Region prioritize cycling routes, maintenance and even snow clearing. To take part contact John Hill at jhill@regionofwaterloo.ca or 519-575-4019.

The Region has inked an agreement with Google to have bike routes in Waterloo Region on Google. However, it must still be in progress because I have been unable to use it or to get anything to come up on maps.google.com/biking.  Will ask at the next regional cycling meeting.
