Pop-up: Let’s Talk About Cycling

Charlottetown City Hall


Friday, September 21, 2018, 10:00am - 03:00pm

On Friday, September 21, the City of Charlottetown will set up the third “Let’s Talk About Cycling” pop-up on Kent Street, next to City Hall on Park(ing) Day from 10 am until 3 pm. The public is invited to meet with City staff to provide feedback and also learn more about the goal of improving and expanding on existing infrastructure.

The City wants to continue the conversation on cycling in the Capital by talking to people about their experience with cycling and bicycle safety. Avid and recreational cyclists, would-be cyclists and motorists are welcome to share their thoughts and stories about cycling in Charlottetown. The goal is to raise awareness of the benefits of cycling and gain a better understanding of people’s attitudes and experiences with cycling. The insight gained through these conversations will be used in the municipality’s efforts to improve and expand existing infrastructure, and encourage positive and safe cycling experiences for everyone.

Park(ing) Day is an annual, global, open-source event that is intended to spark creativity and inspire reimagining how we use public spaces through the take-over and activation of metered city parking spaces for the day. The City will be taking over a parking space on Kent Street (the corner of Kent Street and Queen Street) beside City Hall and the public is invited to check it out. The Velo-Vixens will be onsite to assist with cycling commute route planning and information on cycling and sharing the road safely. There will also be games, prizes, and an opportunity to make a smoothie or iced coffee with the Green Machine bicycle blender.

Anyone interested in providing feedback who cannot attend one of the pop-up events is encouraged to email Sustainability Officer Ramona Doyle at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
