Belleville encourages cycling with investments in bike lanes and paths
Cycling is a fun, easy and inexpensive way to get around. It’s also good for you – cycling instead of driving provides built-in daily activity that is hard to beat. The City of Belleville has developed a Cycling Network to encourage cycling in the community. The Network establishes a continuous cycling route, providing a safe and efficient path for riders.
Work included paving an existing off-road cycling path between Bell Boulevard and Tracey Street, making improvements to the Frank Street underpass, and creating designated cycling routes on several streets. This involved painting new lines and symbols on local roads, installing signage and lighting, and paving. This work will result in more than 17 km of bike routes in the city, including 5 km of new bike lanes.
