Ontario Helping Cities Become More Bike-Friendly – This is great news for BruceGreySimcoe, which has been working with Grey and Simcoe Counties on cycling initiatives to make the region a tourism cycling destination:  Ontario is helping cities become more sustainable and environmentally friendly by making it easier to build off-road bike paths and large-scale recreational trails.  The province has created a new streamlined process for municipalities to submit proposals for environmental assessment on new paths and trails. The new environmental assessment process also supports CycleON, the province's long-term strategy to help make Ontario the number one province for cycling in Canada.  To access the province’s cycling strategy and read the full News Release, click here.
