GCAT 2017 Year in Review

2017 was a great year for Guelph Coalition for Active Transportation!  We worked hard to support and encourage citizens who want to bike and walk in Guelph. Here are some highlights  the work that we have done this year.  Please support our membership drive for 2018 so that we can continue to work hard for Guelph citizens to make Guelph a leading city for Active Transportation!

Advocacy

Fun Events to encourage a culture of cycling in Guelph

  • Magnolia Ride-ride through the Magnolia trees in Guelph, followed by a tea party
  • Bridges and Beers-celebrated at 2Rivers Festival with a bike ride on the Bridges of Guelph over the Speed and Eramosa Rivers, celebrated with a pint at the end
  • Love Your Bike Festival– celebrated with 2Rivers and St Andrews Church, and led families on a bike ride through Exhibition Park, and finished at Wooly’s pub for free hotdogs and face painting
  • Tweed Ride– we dressed in old timey clothes and rode through the beautiful neighbourhoods of Guelph and celebrated with a pint
  • ran bike tour with Alex Chapman, City of Guelph, highlighting energy innovations in Guelph at Municipal Innovators Conference
