The public is being encouraged to give input on the future of Victoria’s cycling network during two open house style salons this week.

During the salons, residents will have a chance to see concepts of what the new cycling lanes could look like and share feedback on the design, style and potential impact on each neighbourhood.

James Bay, Fairfield, Rockland, Gonzales, north/south Jubilee will be the focus on Tuesday, Dec. 1 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Cook Street Village Association Activity Centre (380 Cook St).

North Park, Harris Green, Fernwoood, Oaklands and Hillside/Quadra will be the focus of the salon on Wednesday, Dec. 2 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Cafee Fantastico (965 Kings Rd).

Victoria West, downtown Victoria and Burnside/Gorge will be the focus during the Thursday, Dec. 3 salon, also from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Habit Coffee (552 Pandora Ave.)

The proposed network includes eight corridors. North to south corridors include Harbour Road/Wharf Street/Belleville Street, Government Street/Gorge Road, Cook Street/Graham and Fifth streets, Begbie/Shelbourne streets.

East to west corridors include Pandora/Oak Bay Avenue, Humboldt Street/Fairfield Road, Fort Street and Haultain Street/Bay Street and Kings Road.

More than 1,700 people have already provided feedback through an online survey, while another 400 participated in Biketoria events.

The city has committed $7.75 million to cycling infrastructure over the next four years.
