The Road – Shared Space for Cyclists and Motorists

The SAAQ, working with police officers and Vélo-Sécur patrollers

In May and June 2010, police officers and Vélo-Sécur patrollers rode along bicycle paths to raise awareness among cyclists about the importance of wearing a helmet and obeying safety rules.

To assist them in their efforts, they were given the Safe Cycling Guide (PDF, 1.2 MB) and the Let’s All Share the Road… Safely (PDF, 598 KB) leaflet.

Les énigmes de Génivélo: a kit for young cyclists aged 7 to 12

A kit entitled Les énigmes de Génivélo was provided to police officers free of charge for their awareness activities with children aged 7 to 12.

The Tour du Silence (Ride of Silence)

To commemorate cyclists who were killed or injured on the road, we became a partner of the Fédération québécoise des sports cyclistes for the Tour du Silence (Ride of Silence) in 2010.

This silent bicycle ride is the largest active awareness-raising activity to promote bicycle and road safety across Québec.

The Tour du Silence is held every year, on the third Wednesday in May, at many locations around the world. This event reminds cyclists about basic safety rules and makes motorists aware of the vulnerability of cyclists.
