As part of bike month, the Ontario towns of Mississippi Mills and Carleton Place are hosting a “Let Them Eat Cake” ride on June 26. The ride encourages active transportation through cycling.
Earlier this year, Mississippi Mills adopted an Active Transportation Plan (ATP) developed by Dillon. The ATP provides a framework, and recommends improvements for walking, cycling, hiking and other non-motorized modes of transportation to advance greener and healthier transportation alternatives. Recommendations include enhancements of the transportation network to better support active transportation for recreation, commuting and tourism.
