WINNIPEG made three announcements for cyc­lists on Wednesday: the publication of a new bike­route map, a second Bike To Work Day and a global positioning system project that will let hundreds of riders track their routes around the city.
The 2009 Winnipeg Cycling Map, which sells for $2 at bike shops, replaces a 1999 version commis­sioned for the Pan Am Games.
The GPS project, dubbed OttoCycle, will involve approximately 900 Winnipeg cyclists tracking their routes between May and October to help the city determine where new cycling infrastructure should be built in Winnipeg. Anyone who cycles more than once a week is eligible to participate in the Centre for Sustainable Transportation study. Interested cyclists are asked to sign up by emailing or calling 988-7182.
Bike to Work Day, meanwhile, falls on Friday, June 19.
