Perks for cycling enthusiasts are shifting into high gear in London this week.
City officials will unveil London’s first bike corral Monday morning in front of the Central Library on Dundas Street. A new Bike Fix-it Station will also be on display as Mayor Matt Brown roll in at 10:45 a.m. for the unveil.
Officials will make a couple of more stops in the city to show off other corrals. The group will cycle to Wortley Village for photos with the newly installed Bike Fix-it Station at Tuckey Home Hardware at 11:30 a.m. Then they’ll ride back to the Old East Village to second bike corral at Shone Pawnbroker at 12:15 p.m.
The Civic Works Committee will get an update from staff on London’s Cycling Master Plan on Wednesday.
The document has been in the works for more than a year and staff are proposing London double its current network of bike lanes and paths over the next 15 years.
The cost of the plan is around $53.5 million.
After councillors review the plan, the report will be sent on to the Cycling Advisory Committee for final review.
