We are a family with 3 small kids. We have one vehicle, and routinely use our bicycles for transportation. We are teaching our children bicycle safety, yet travelling any farther than our immediate neighbourhood is dangerous for families because of traffic concerns. A bicycle route across the city would make areas like the bayfront more accessible to us.
I ride my bicycle to work everyday, and often consider my own safety as I travel. I take the safety measures available to me, and use bike lanes, bike routes, and rail trail wherever possible. I am still concerned for my safety as I travel down certain roads in our city. Main street is a major concern. I want to arrive alive, as a mom of 3, and I don't want a choice toward environmental sustainability and affordability to be a trade-off on safety.
Please, please! For our family, make this bike lane happen!
Yes We Cannon is a citizen's group focused on creating a safe transportation route for cyclists along Cannon Street.

Cannon street slated for work - so let's make sure we get it right!
With the Pan Am Precinct revitalization plan, part of Cannon Street is already being considered for a redesign and roadwork. While the crews are there, we should make sure that we make Cannon work for all road users the entire length of Cannon - not just in one small section.
Thank you to our sponsors!
