100 x $100 Giving Tuesday Cyclist Challenge

Result:

Wow. Huge thanks to the 55 wonderful Winnipeggers who gave big to the 100x$100 challenge. You made a difference. BW will take what your gave and make strong representations for much better AT plans in the city Transportation Master Plan.

Time for infrastructure and maintenance to transition from “accommodating” cyclists to making cycling more convenient than driving. All year.

Giving Tuesday is about donating to things that matter, after the spending sprees of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

  • The City’s 2015 pedestrian/cycling plan has been underfunded by more than $60 million.
  • Winnipeg must achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050
  • Emissions from transportation account for over half of Winnipeg’s GHG emissions
  • The City is developing a Transportation Master Plan to guide road infrastructure investments to 2050.

To meet its climate targets, Winnipeg must change course NOW to making travel by bicycle safe, convenient and enjoyable, so that more people leave their automobiles at home more often.

100+ Winnipeg cyclists giving $100 for safer cycling will send strong a message on Giving Tuesday.

Bike Winnipeg will use resources from this campaign to collaborate with CAA on a city-wide survey on climate and transportation, buy strategic advertising, and other projects to educate City leaders on the benefits of redirecting resources to encourage travel by bicycle

Alternatively, $100 will buy ¾ of a tank of gas for a Ford F150 (+170 kg CO2)….
