[FUTURE CYCLING CULTURE SHIFT] ⠀
⠀
☞ My prediction and vision for the future of cycling culture in Victoria - shared during a podcast interview. ⠀
⠀
★ Ideally, I would like the cycling culture to be more like Amsterdam! As I patiently wait for that day, I would like to have a more livable city where cycling normalcy is, well, the norm.⠀
⠀
★ I desire to see more people, on a regular basis, using their bikes to take them to places other than work, just because it’s convenient. It’s a healthy option and a true livable city makes trips by bike the most convenient and efficient way to move around the cityscape.⠀
⠀
★ I took this photo on my way to work this morning, as we were waiting for the bridge to close from boat traffic. This is the bicycle normalcy that I would like to see more of. ⠀
⠀
☞ My vision is to see more people leave the spandex behind and dress for your destination – slowly, as the infrastructure changes, we will start to see these subtle shifts. ⠀
⠀
★ How did you ride today?

[ON PROTECTED BIKE LANES] ⠀
⠀
☞ In our series on infrastructure, today we’re talking about protected bike lanes. During a podcast interview I was asked to share my thoughts on Victoria's AAA Bike network. Of course I can't wait, we've been patiently waiting. Here's my thoughts. ⠀
★ The City of Victoria has embarked on a mission to build 8 protected bike lanes throughout the greater Victoria area. ⠀
⠀
☞ That old adage; ‘build it and they will come’, is not an absolute!⠀
⠀
Once the protected bike lanes are in place and they are connecting citizens to meaningful destinations:⠀
⠀
★ Routes need to be maintained, ⠀
★ We need to sell it, ⠀
★ Evaluate it, and ⠀
★ Be prepared to adjust it! ⠀
Then, over time, they will come.⠀
⠀
★ Most importantly – it will always be a work in progress. We can’t stop after the 8 protected tracks are in place. I see this as only the beginning of what’s possible for creating a livable city. These are my thoughts. I would love to hear yours!

[YESTERDAY] ⠀
⠀
During my podcast interview I was asked for my opinion on the [benefits of accessible bicycle routes]. Here they are:⠀
⠀
★ Gets more people who normally feel uncomfortable, in the current conditions, out on their bikes more often - hopefully. ⠀
⠀
★ Better treatment of pedestrian spaces (sidewalks, crosswalks, consideration of desire lines and new green spaces). ⠀
⠀
★ And of course protection and separation from vehicle traffic. ⠀
⠀
☞ But it's not all about the bicycle. It's also about providing different modes of improved transport to help people move around the city scape in a more comfortable way, such as:⠀
* Buses (running more often in desired places)⠀
* Commuter Rail (designed to bring people from their homes outside of the city into a walking, cycling, hoping on a bus distance into town. The commuter train must also provide space for bicycles, luggage and baby carriages).⠀
* Walking in comfortable spaces, and⠀
* yes, driving as options. ⠀
⠀
☞ Accessible bikes routes is the beginning of a better livable city where public green spaces create opportunities for people to interact with each other. ⠀
⠀
★ Next installment on this topic tomorrow where I'll share more of my thoughts on infrastructure in #YYJ. ⠀

⠀⠀⠀
☞ Follow these 3 steps and you can enjoy riding your bicycle the way you did when you were young and free. ⠀⠀⠀

☞ Just thinking about livable cities and then I found this. ⠀
⠀
★ It's a little alley that takes you from Johnson St. to Yates St. It has such potential for public greening. ⠀
⠀
★ I've seen this space evolve over the years; first the brick wall around the tree. It had a nice flat surface to sit and take a rest. ⠀
⠀
★ Look at it today. It's not welcoming anyone to sit under this lovely tree. In fact the message says the opposite. Too bad, it has potential. ⠀
⠀
☞ You can see we've got a long way to go.

#BIKETOWNYYJ VIDEO - a must see!⠀
⠀
☞ With current and proposed transportation changes coming to Victoria, I started thinking about the opportunities this project offers its’ citizens of YYJ, in terms of transportation and mode share options, and it's not just about cycling. ⠀
⠀
★ The proposed transportation infrastructure changes also provide creative opportunities for everyone to get curious about different means of traveling around our beautify cityscape. ⠀
⠀
★ This fuels my passion for urban cycling and the changes this transportation mode shift will bring to our city. It is this passion that I was so happy to participate in the #Biketownyyj music video (search YouTube using Biketownyyj) ⠀
⠀

You'll see our friend Pete from "At the Heart' article and many other local celebrities such as Jasper Blake.⠀ ⠀ ☞ Cycling capital of Canada? Well we're not quite there yet. In 1990 local cycling advocates naively declared YYJ the cycling capital of Canada. This moniker has been loosely hanging over our heads ever since. In terms of topography, weather and great places to ride to (with no shortage of coffee shops to enjoy), then I guess we are ish... ⠀ ⠀ ★ We’re behind though in the cycling and pedestrian infrastructure realm, which makes it hard for me to agree with this statement but, what I think this video does is show what’s possible when you get behind a movement that supports cycling in a fun and captivating way. The video puts a smile on my face every time I watch it. ⠀ ⠀ ★ Watch out Canada, it's time for Victoria's up-rising! Realistically though, it's going to take a while. :)⠀ ⠀ ☞ This is the first music video I've been in. See if you can find me? I'm in the scene with Mayor Lisa Helps.. and we're lookin pretty bad ass. ⠀
