Help create a connected cycling network for riders of all ages and abilities

We welcomed the community at an Open House on July 27th at City Hall. Attendees watched a presentation and participated in a Question & Answer. Find more information here. If you missed it, check out our documents section for a video of the Open House presentation.

The first round of community engagement is now complete. We’ve reviewed your feedback and developed conceptual designs, which are being shared as part of the current Community Engagement phase.

Have a look at the engagement summary from our first round of engagement.

We’re looking to create a protected cycling network in Guelph that will help all riders feel comfortable biking along key streets in the city while connecting large parts of our community.

As part of this study, we’ve developed conceptual designs for 3 corridors of “AAA” (all ages and abilities) protected cycling facilities. This study is looking at:

  • Eramosa Road between Woolwich Street to Victoria Road (Study Area A)
  • Gordon Street between Waterloo Avenue to Clair Road (Study Area B*)
  • College Avenue between Janefield Avenue to Dundas Lane (Study Area C)

*Study Area B has a gap between Lowes and Edinburgh, where the Gordon Street Improvements Environmental Assessment took place. That project involved the design of protected bike facilities, which the Cycling Network Study will tie into. This will create a seamlessly protected cycling facility on Gordon from Downtown to the South End of Guelph.

The study objectives are to develop conceptual designs that provide safe, continuous cycling and micro-mobility (such as scooters) connections to and from major community destinations, including major transit stops.

Map the routes

As part of this study, we’ll develop conceptual designs for 13 kilometres of “AAA” (all ages and abilities) protected cycling facilities along three corridors that provide safe, continuous connections for cycling and micro-mobility, such as scooters, to and from community destinations and major transit stops. This study will look at: 

  • Eramosa Road (Woolwich Street to Victoria Road)
  • Gordon Street (Waterloo Avenue to Clair Road)
  • College Avenue (Janefield Avenue to Dundas Lane)

The designs will help riders of any age or ability feel comfortable biking along these key streets in Guelph.

We need your input as we get started on the designs for these corridors. 

In this mapping survey, you are asked to identify the following for the three corridors in this study:

  • Areas where you have accessibility concerns. Where do you currently have trouble crossing the street? Where are the barriers? 
  • Areas where you have safety concerns. Where do you feel particularly unsafe? Do certain driveways or access points feel troublesome? Are there intersections that feel unsafe?
  • Important destinations. Where do you frequently visit?
  • Importation connections. Where do you connect to other routes in the city?
  • Design ideas or other suggestions. Considering the types of protected cycling infrastructure we are considering (cycle track, multi-use path, protected bike lane), do you have any suggestions related to the design at particular locations along the corridors?
