About us

Who we are

 A coalition of residents, businesses & organizations who believe Oakville can do better to achieve the benefits increased cycling can bring to help make it the "Most Livable Town in Canada" 

The organization was established in 2016 by local cyclists to bring together Oakville's various cycling groups.  A stronger, unified voice to advocate at council and through the municipal election process is needed to get cycling, as one of Canada's fastest growing forms of green transportation and recreation, the attention and funding it deserves.

Mission

Oakville put forward a 10-year $35-million Active Transportation Master Plan (ATMP) in 2009.  As of 2017, other Town priorities have resulted in less than 20% of the plan being implemented. 


Our mission is to help position cycling in Oakville as a mainstream activity for both recreation and transportation by promoting safe and efficient cycling infrastructure.  This involves partnering to improve the planning process (routes, budget etc.) and checking to see if promises are kept.  


Oakville's cyclists deserve cycling infrastructure that is safe and allows them a viable mobility option to reach many of Oakville's great destinations. 

What we believe

Cycling benefits society

  1. To be Canada's most livable community Oakville needs much better cycling infrastructure
  2. Bias for action and "can do" attitude required at Town Hall to move things forward
  3. Safety is paramount;  reliance on sharrows by the 2017 Active Transportation Master Plan update is dangerous.  Follow this link for a University Colorado Study refuting the Safety of Sharrows https://livableoakvillecycling.com/resources Therefore we do not support the plan as we believe it will be proposed to council on July 10, 2017. 
  4. Piecemeal implementation & business as usual isn't working and will take too long to establish a #MinimumGrid for Oakville - It may be 30-40 years at current pace.

Our Partners

Collaboration is key !

We are looking for the Town's leadership to coordinate and engage with its many willing partners to build a #MinimumGrid.
