We will crush cyclists, like a bug... BANG!

The management of the Parc Jean Drapeau that run the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve race track and popular site for road bike riding has proven that they mean business, and cycling at speed will not be permitted.


Now, police radar and tickets are part of their 2010 management plan for this sports facility.

Imagine an olympic pool, where anyone in the fast lane was prohibited from going at their maximum. You get the picture.

Tickets, and radar surveillance are the new reality.

We don't know if this is a one-time "show of force" or if it will be a recurring risk to cyclists riding there.

What this most represents is the complete failure of parc management to solve the problem of safely combining different speeds of users on the race track.

Our solution: start with new management at Parc Jean Drapeau. And this time, management that doesn't hate cyclists.
