"Pop Up" Protected Bike Lane Marks Bike To Work Week

In celebration of Bike to Work Week, the City of Victoria is hosting an open house to engage the community on the future of the proposed protected bike lanes along Pandora Avenue and Johnson Street. The on-street open house will feature a “pop-up bike lane” along Pandora Avenue and examples of possible separation for the first protected bike lanes in Victoria’s history.

 The two options for Victoria’s first physically protected bike lanes are:

  • A two-way, physically protected bike lane with traffic signals for bikes on Pandora Avenue and a standard painted bike lane on Johnson Street
  • A set of one way physically protected bike lanes with traffic signals for bikes, one on Pandora Avenue, one on Johnson Street

On-street open house details:

Where: 600 block of Pandora Avenue – entrance to City Hall 

When:  Tuesday May 26, 2015

Time:    12 p.m. – 7 p.m.

The public is invited to ride to the open house and experience a “pop-up bike lane” designed to simulate the feel of cycling inside a protected bike lane along Pandora Avenue. The event is open to everyone and first time cyclists and families are encouraged to attend to help shape the future of cycling here in Victoria.
