Ottawa Police = Bike Commuter!

I just saw this article and though I would share. Here is a quote from the article to peak your interest.

Quote:
The Ottawa police staff sergeant is one of a dedicated cadre of bicycle enthusiasts who donít stop pedalling once the leaves drop and the snow flies in fall.

+1. I've definetly seen an increase. Of course, Calgary has grown enormously in the past two years, but I think the increase of bike commuters is outpacing population growth, most likely because parking rates are sky rocketing and the roads are more clogged than John Goodman's arteries.
