Cycling

The 20-year vision for cycling facilities throughout the city is contained in the Cycling Plan.

For Findlay Creek, the Plan includes bike lanes and paved shoulders along Bank Street and a off-road path parallel to Conroy Road. Originally, Albion Road was not identified as a cycling route. The FCCA lobbied against this issue; it is now planned that Albion Road will receive paved shoulders in the future.

The FCCA will continue to lobby the city to provide include cycling facilities in and around Findlay Creek.
