North Bay councillors will be asked to support the Voyageur Cycling route in a couple of weeks. The request comes on the heels of a presentation outlining the benefits of the route from former City Hall employee Alan Korrel.
Korell has been working on the proposal which is to extend the cycling route from Deep River to Coniston. Korell says there are economic development opportunities because cyclists will use local resources.
The biggest challenge is to convince the Ministry of Transportation to pave the shoulders along Highway 17 and create buffer strips.
