Cycle Oakville is gearing up for an exciting season, and recently filled a room at Town Hall for a meeting to celebrate cycling in Oakville, its accomplishments over the last year, and to share ideas for 2014.

Jamie Stuckless, Manager, Youth Education, Share the Road Cycling Coalition, spoke about the organization’s new UCycle program – a community partnership engaging Sheridan College in cycling education and initiatives.

The positive energy in the room was palpable, as participants broke in to groups to brainstorm ideas. Participants then shared their ideas, and discussed ways to put them in to action. As a result, many of these initiatives will see the light this year.

The Oakville Community Foundation was on hand as Cycle Oakville announced the launch of its new website, www.cycleoakville.ca, made possible because of a grant from Oakville Community Foundation’s Environment Fund.

In 2014, residents can look forward to new social rides and the return of last year’s favourites, continued co-operation with Oakville businesses, route maps, partnerships with the YMCA and beginner repair clinics.
