GCAT - Guelph Coalition for Active Transportation

“Ride The Ward” rides with your municipal ward candidate!

Want to join some of your municipal ward candidates to  learn about the benefits and pitfalls of riding a bike in your neighbourhood?

This September and October, Guelph Coalition for Active Transportation (GCAT) is hosting ward rides in  Wards 1 through 6  to talk about the good, the bad and the ugly of Guelph active transportation infrastructure. Each ride will take approximately an hour at a leisurely pace, with stops along the way. The public and the media are invited to attend and share ideas.

At the end of each ride, we will stop at a pre designated location to discuss what we liked about the ride, and how we can improve active transportation infrastructure in each ward. We will compile the information for all candidates,including mayoral candidates, and city staff!
Here are the dates for the rides: All rides begin at 11am. Click on Ward to get map of the ride: Please RSVP your ride leader or info@gcat.ca if you are interested in attending!
