Two wheels and a goodbye to Fast Eddie

Pedal-power is on the rise as city ups the ante to clear streets for come cyclists

PERHAPS because it was a mild winter followed by an early spring,  there seems to be a growing number of people out on bicycles.

Whether it’s more people using two wheels instead of four to get to work or more people opting for cycling as a relaxing past time of fresh air, exercise and stress relief, pedal-power is on the rise.

That the area is relatively flat lends itself to more opportunities to cycle, as does the gradual introduction of widened streets.

Also not to be discounted is the extension of the Grand Trunk Pathway, as well as the annual spring sweeping of streets and roadways on the part of the city and Nechako Northcoast to make things just a bit smoother.

For those perhaps a bit apprehensive of mingling with vehicle traffic, Terrace and area drivers are remarkably considerate and accommodating. And thumbs up to the city for its new no-charge tire pump at George Little Park.

Also to be noted is that the April 6 issue is the last issue of The Terrace Standard to contain the name of production manager Edouard Credgeur.

The second person to be hired when The Terrace Standard began publishing in 1988, Ed has been the primary steadying influence through a multitude of technological and other changes and challenges.

We wish him – and wife Sue – the best in retirement.
