Good day wonderful Sustainable Cobourg supporters! This Tuesday will be your opportunity to hear what those mighty cyclists see as moving Cobourg beyond BRONZE! Remember, this Sustainable Cobourg Committee, chaired by Winston Emery, worked with the Town to deal with safe cycling and it helped the Town receive the designation of a “Bicycle Friendly Community, Bronze Level”, in 2018.
This is especially important as we really want as many cyclists, young and not so young to feel safe and comfortable riding around our beautiful town. We need this infrastructure so we can bike over to do our shopping, (check out the new greengrocer we’ve all been longing for downtown…Market& Smor), or go for a coffee, or hang out at a Council meeting, or visit a friend. We hope to influence the pathways that will connect the west to the east and the north to the south. We’ve done a lot, (most recently lobbying for the Elgin St. multi-use trail so cyclists don’t have to worry about right-turning cars going into the mall!). Lots more to do. We know its good for our health both physical and mental and we absolutely know its part of the solution for reducing Greenhouse Gases! Sooo, if you want to get involved with this really awesome group let me know.
So, Tuesday February 19 at 6:00 (cause they changed the time of Council from 4:00 to 6:00p.m. so more people who are working can participate)
Keep in touch.
