Peel GPS Cycling Study — Call for Participants!

The Region of Peel in collaboration with the City of Mississauga, City of Brampton, and Town of Caledon are starting a cycling research project with the University of Waterloo.  As part of the project, we are recruiting cyclists to take part in a 2 week study where they will carry a GPS on their bicycles and complete an online survey.  The study is to bring a stronger voice to cyclists and cycling within the Region.  Results of this study will help the Region accommodate current cycling activity and prioritize future cycling investments.  Cyclists of all levels are asked to participate!

If you ride a bike in Peel, we need you! Study details include:
Cycling with a mobile GPS for two weeks;
Completing an online survey; and
Chance to win a $50 VISA gift card

The study will be conducted during three 2 week periods:
Group 1: July 25 to Aug. 8  Registration ends July 24.  COMPLETED.
Group 2: Aug. 22 to Sept. 5  Registration ends Aug. 21.  SESSION FULL.
Group 3: Sept. 26 to Oct. 10 Registration ends Sept. 25.  SPOTS STILL AVAILABLE.

For more information on this study, please visit the Walk+Roll Peel webpage.  If you have any questions on the study and/or interested in participating, please contact Erica Duque, Transportation Demand Management Analyst, at walkandroll@peelregion.ca or 905-791-7800 ext. 4226.

Please help spread the word and forward this to your networks!
