The Bicycle Use Master Plan
(BUMP) is a statement of the City of Windsor's commitment to develop a visible and connected cycling network that is easily accessible, safe and actively used by all types of cyclists. The Plan emphasizes integrating, enhancing and expanding Windsor's existing on- and off-road cycling network, facilitating the use of bicycles for commuting, leisure and tourism, and providing a genuine transportation alternative to the use of motor vehicles. BUMP also focuses on topics such as cycling awareness and education, the cycling-transit link, and end-of-trip facilities.
City of Windsor Council is committed to making our community a better place to live.
As per the Mayor's State of the City Address on November 27, 2013:
"Quality of life matters... not only to every one of us, but also to families and investors looking to find a new city to call home.
Our city's plan identifies a network of connected trails across the city including multi-use trails, bike lanes, and something commonly referred to as the Windsor Loop."
As part of the 2013 and 2014 capital budgets, Council respectively endorsed $1.8 million to construct the Cabana Road cycling facilities and $5.0 million to complete the Windsor Loop.
The Windsor Loop is a 42.5 km (26.4 miles) circular loop that connects the city around its perimeter, joining city neighbourhoods and providing access to the Trans Canada Trail. A majority of the Loop is in place with the exception of a few key segments.
In addition to completing the remaining 12.4 km (7.7 miles) gaps in the Windsor Loop, funding is allocated to construct 17.8 km (11.1 miles) of planned cycling facilities to connect currently low-serviced neighbourhoods.
To view the Windsor Loop concept, see Map #7 (The Windsor Loop and Trans Canada Trail Connection) of the Bicycle Use Master Plan. A revised implementation plan will be posted and updated as the project moved forward.
