Support Provincial Investment in Cycling

Please pass this message on to your cycling friends.

The message can be as short or as long as you want. The most important thing is to let them know that investing in cycling is important.

- The mention any of the other recommendations that are important to your or your community.
- What these recommendations and improved cycling would mean for you, your family and your community
- Specific cycling facilities you would like to see built
- Stories on what new cycling facilities have meant to you and your community
- Stories about impact of the lack of cycling facilities in your community
