A group of around 200 cyclists made their way slowly down Laurier Avenue calling for safer bicycle infrastructure on Ottawa’s roads.
The ride comes a week after a cyclist was killed on that same stretch of road in an alleged hit-and-run. Police are still looking for the driver of a black van that was abandoned after allegedly striking the cyclists.
The group began their ride at the intersection of Laurier Avenue and Nicholas Street and made their way down Laurier to Bank Street where they turned around and made their way back to city hall where they will continue their call for safer roads to council when they meet on Wednesday morning.
More to come.
