Richard Vandezande, manager of development services for Uxbridge, sent a report to council recently regarding a draft Regional Cycling Plan Study outlining "an important initiative to improve the capacity for cycling in the Region of Durham." The bike paths within Uxbridge proposed in the study involve on and off-road links, including paved shoulder routes. "This initiative supports the healthy communities' initiative by developing cycling as an alternate form of transportation by facilitating integration and ease of movement for non-motorized modes of transportation and linking these routes with important Regional features such as communities, attractions and destinations."
