New trail boosts cycling numbers in Richmond Hill
The City of Richmond Hill has seen the number of cyclists more than double since construction of this new 2.25 km sidewalk and multi-use trail.
Federal Gas Tax funds were invested in the creation of this route, which forms part of 18 km of recreational and commuter trails and is part of the Lake to Lake Cycling Route and Walking Trail.
The multi-use path allows recreational users and commuters to share off-road space, and provides cyclists with new routes that allow for more direct trips.
It provides commuters with an active transportation option directly linked to the City’s largest business park, promotes a cleaner environment and benefits local businesses.
