Parc Drapeau/Circuit Gilles Villeneuves management hates cyclists, continued...

The F1 race is over and the management of Parc Drapeau who permit cyclists to use the race track for relatively car free and nonstop cycling, are getting ready to install the "Chicanes" that will slow down cyclists. Apparently police radar will be out to enforce the 30km/h speed limit.

If you think this is a bad idea, here's the Facebook group to join: Laissez le Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve aux cyclistes. (translation: Leave the Gilles Villeneuve track to cyclists).

We agree that this is the one place in Montreal where what is called "speed cyclists" can practice our legitimate sport with safety and minimal road hazards, that is, until the management fabricates new excuses in order to crush the sport of cycling and builds "Chicanes" and calls out the police.

Why does Circuit Gilles Villeneuve hate cyclists so much? We don't know the answer, but their actions speak volumes about their hate-on for us.

It is time for a change of management at Parc Drapeau, starting at the top.
