The HUB Cycling Burnaby Committee recently worked with the City of Burnaby engineering department to remove a hazard for people cycling. A curb lip was causing falls and injuries. Due to a gap in the network, many people cycling used it an informal bike connection. Thanks to the Burnaby Committees advocacy efforts, the engineering department ground down the lip, removing the hazard. Learn more.

Would your local candidates for mayor and council vote in favour of increasing cycling education, investment, and infrastructure that would #UnGapTheMap in your municipality and the region more broadly? And would they make these commitments within the next four-year election cycle?
