Hey Victoria, we think you’re on to something!

Victoria is on a journey to becoming one of the best small cities for cycling in the world, and we’re along for the ride.

In Spring 2017, INTERACT launched a multi-year study to uncover how the implementation of Victoria’s All Ages and Abilities (AAA) Bike Network is impacting physical activity, social connectedness and well-being.

The intervention

The City of Victoria is constructing a 32km All Ages and Abilities (AAA) cycling network and implementing multi-modal transportation upgrades to improve safety for vulnerable road users. Once the network is complete, 95% of the municipality will be within 500m of a AAA cycling route. While such facilities are common in European cycling cities, to date no Canadian city has a protected cycling network serving all areas of the city.  Victoria’s $7.75M commitment to the AAA Cycling Network is an important step in its bold journey to becoming one of the best small cities for cycling in the world.

How did participants respond in 2019?

The health questionnaire focuses on lifestyle, health, transportation habits and the perception of change in the neighbourhood. VERITAS is a map-based questionnaire which allows respondents to indicate where and with whom they do certain activities.
