Earlier this month, at the annual Toronto Bike Awards, TCAT was proud to present the sixth annual Active Transportation Champion Award to Eleanor McMahon.
As CEO of Share the Road Cycling Coalition, Eleanor brought the successful Bicycle Friendly Communities award program to Ontario, organized numerous regional and provincial Bike Summits and rides across the province, delivered compelling and hard-hitting advertising campaigns about sharing the road and truck safety, produced a “Green Paper on Bicycling in Ontario” that helped to form the framework of #CycleON, Ontario’s Bicycle Strategy, and successfully lobbied for the Safer Roads Ontario Act that represents the most significant change to the Highway Traffic Act in decades with a specific eye to improving cyclist and pedestrian safety.

TCAT thanks Eleanor for all of her hard work on the behalf of cyclists across the province and congratulates her as TCAT’s 2014 Active Transportation Champion of the Year.
