Monna’s Weekly Bike Safety Tip – NCC multiuse pathways

As the weather improves, sections of the NCC multiuse pathways simply can’t safely accommodate the volume of eclectic traffic: pedestrians, baby strollers, toddlers, senior citizens, dog walkers, joggers, roller bladers, wheelchairs, Canada geese and, especially, speeding cyclists.

National Capital Commission Bike Paths


  • respect the speed limit of 20 kilometers per hour
  • ride in single file
  • ring your bell and call out “passing on your left” as you pass other pathway users

If you wish to go faster – PLEASE go on the road.
