We want to hear from you!

Are we pedaling in the right direction?
Do you think encouraging cycling in our city will help to reduce our dependence on our beloved cars and, therefore, on fossil fuels, a major cause of global warming?

Help us take the heat off the planet and put it on city planners and politicians to give priority to cycling in Sault Ste. Marie.
Your comments and suggestions will be included as part of a preliminary report that will be submitted to City Council recommending the necessary infrastructure changes that support alternative forms of transportation, including cycling in Sault Ste. Marie.
