I have decided to stop maintaining this News Blog because it has become redundant as a result of the recent opening of the Ottawa Citizen’s blog (Citizencycle). This became obvious when I was travelling during my vacation this summer. No internet access, slow internet access, and the difference in time zones made it difficult to post material on my news blog in a timely manner. When I did get a chance to update the blog, I noticed that much of what I was going to post was already on the Ottawa Citizen Blog. Hence, my postings were going to be old news.
The Citizencycle website and blog have gotten off to a good start, and I hope the Ottawa Citizen continues to support what they started. Despite the good job they are doing, the Ottawa Citizen site cannot be relied on for all news and information about cycling. For example, they may be reluctant to point out interesting material about cycling that may appear on the Ottawa Sun website (especially the excellent blog that is being maintained by Kris Westwood). As a result, I have included links to several news sources and blogs about local cycling on the main page of the GoBiking.ca website.
I have also decided to resurrect the old “Discussion Forum” that used to appear on the Gobiking website. Although it was never well used, it may be of service to people who wish to post announcements and other messages. I will also post material on it from time to time.
Note that there is no need to register to post material on this Discussion Forum. However, this could change if the forum starts picking up too much spam or inappropriate material.
