York Region Cycling Coalition - Q&A with York Region Police - Monday April 23rd 2018 - 7PM

Hey all,

York Region Cycling Coalition has set up a private event for the clubs in York Region called CYCLING AND THE LAW. Know your Rights! Get Informed!

The York Regional Police and York Region will be on hand to explain the rules of the road, providing a detailed review of the cycling laws and their application in York Region. The Region will also provide a review of cycling initiatives and efforts in the Region, including road closures.

Some of the questions that will be answered:

Can I ride two abreast with my group?

Can my group cross an intersection together at a stop sign?

What’s the long term plan for cycling in the region?

How do I report a problem on the road?

Do I have to ride single file?

What is happening this year in the region that will affect cycling?

The event will be held on April 23rd at 7:00 pm. If you need further information, please do not hesitate to contact me. Further information is attached.
