Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville in Quebec: unreasonable influx of cyclists into their quiet neighbourhood ?

Some of the residents of Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville in Quebec appealed to their city councilors on Monday to stop what they consider an unreasonable influx of cyclists into their quiet neighbourhood.

The residents who showed up consider the club riders who come to train on the roads of their neighbourhood more than just a nuisance but an invasion of their quiet streets. They think cyclists using the neighbourhood to train are disregarding the street laws and there needs to be a greater police presence.

Nicole Kirouac, who lives on Rue du Sommet-Trinité near the corner of Chemin des Hirondelles and Rue Mésange, told La Radio Allumée she feels like a hostage because of the cyclists who chose the roads of her neighbourhood to train on for hours.

A popular Strava segment that goes by this intersection, a 500 m stretch of road that rises at an average gradient of 3.7 per cent, has 11,912 attempts by 1,335 users. Many of the roads in this corner of Saint-Bruno rise gently as they sit on the slopes of the Mont-Sainte-Bruno and are dead ends so they don't see very much vehicle traffic.

Build 350 New Miles of Trail to Create Largest State Multi-use Trail Network in the Nation

750-Mile Trail Network Will Connect Lake Erie to the Capital Region and the New York Harbor to Canada

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today proposed completing the Hudson River Valley Greenway and Erie Canalway trails by 2020 to create the Empire State Trail, the largest state multi-use trail in the nation.

To achieve this, the state will develop 350 miles of new trail in three phases to create a 750-mile pathway for hiking and biking along scenic vistas and through charming, historic communities. The Empire State Trail will span much of the state, from the New York Harbor up through the Adirondack Mountains to the Canadian border - and from the shores of Lake Erie along the historic Erie Canal to the heart of the Capital Region.
