In the months before the 2018 municipal election, CycleWR volunteers have been taking municipal electoral candidates for bike rides to show off the best and worst of the cycling infrastructure in their ward/city/region. For a full list of completed rides, click here. CycleWR is a non-partisan organization that does not support any particular party or candidate.

CycleWR volunteer Jane Snyder took Waterloo Ward 7 candidate Tenille Bonoguore candidate for a bike ride this summer. Here’s what Tenille had to say about it:
It was not just a lovely night out. This infrastructure is essential. Without a decent grid of lanes that actually connect, cyclists aren’t safe. Cycling infrastructure also supports other things, like walking trails, safer streets, and reduced traffic congestion. I’ll fight for it at City Hall, and I’ll be a vocal advocate for it when dealing with the Region.
