Ottawa is pouring millions into new cycling paths – but are they going to the neighbourhoods that really need them? An avid cyclist, Isaac Wurmann (BJ4) explores the growing controversy over “cycling equity,” as poverty activists in cities across the continent argue that upscale neighbourhoods are getting the lion’s share of cycling funding, even though people in low-income areas desperately need affordable transportation, and are statistically more likely to bike every day. Originally written for his In-depth Reporting Course, his story appears in this month’s edition of Ottawa Magazine.
