About the Cycling Master Plan

Since June 2020, we have been working on our first Cycling Master Plan. This Plan will identify strategies to improve and grow cycling in the City of Peterborough over the next 20 years. There have been several public engagement opportunities during the process and the documents section of this page has the background reports, results from public engagements, final draft cycling network maps and the Executive Summary for the final report. The full final report will be posted here once it is completed. The vision, goals and scenario that lay the groundwork for the Cycling Master Plan were approved by City Council in July 2021. The final report is expected to go to Council in the winter of 2022.

The final report will:

  1. Identify strategies to improve the current silver bicycle friendly rating of the City to gold or platinum.
  2. Review and update the Cycling Network in the 2012 Comprehensive Transportation Plan, incorporating changes and new opportunities for cycling infrastructure, including an infrastructure development and prioritization strategy.
  3. Provide recommendations and cost estimates for a maintenance program to encourage year-round cycling.
  4. Recommend design standards for cycling infrastructure that is informed by best practices for cyclist safety.
  5. Include recommendations for project phasing, including a list of priority projects for the next 10 years.
  6. Identify effective programming to increase the visibility and acceptance of cycling as a preferred choice of travel mode.

The Cycling Master Plan will feed into the update of the City's Transportation Plan, which will be taking place at the same time.

    George Street has been identified as a priority in the Cycling Network Plan since 2012 and most of the cycling lanes are now in place. In 2021, a project is planned to preserve the pavement (called microsurfacing) on the last remaining section without cycling lanes, the section between Lake Street and Lansdowne Street. When a road is resurfaced or microsurfaced, it is an ideal time to put in cycling lanes because all new pavement markings will be needed. In this survey, you will be asked to provide input on the proposed cycling lanes.

    Charlotte Street has been identified as a priority in the Cycling Network Plan since 2012. It is the only east-west corridor that does not have a large hill. This year, the top asphalt is being replaced on the section west of Park Street. This is the most economical time to implement cycling lanes because all the pavement markings will be removed, leaving a blank slate. Watch our video presentation to learn more about the project and then provide your input.
