1. GATINEAU PARC, PLOWS , TOLLS ETC
 Devashish Paul   (General Comments)
skip to next       Back to top
 
As a follow up on the discussion related to snow melt, riding in the spring and traffic, I would like to see a user fee in Gatineau Park (provided the stewards keep up a good level of service) for all seasons and all forms of access.

As a skier (not much lately, but I still consider myself one given all the miles logged in every corner of the park over 3 decades), I pay for my trail pass to access the services of the park. I understand that grooming costs "more" than summer maintenance. But maybe it does not. I don't have the math, but we know that year round maintenance costs something.

As a cyclist, it is awesome to access the roads for free. Same thing mountain bike or running or hiking off road. But guess what guys. I always see some sort of maintenance going on. As a summer athlete, I kind of get all this for free. Same with people driving through and parking in the parking lots and then doing their activities. There is a cost for their cars to be there.

It would be more fair if there was simply a dry season pass and a winter pass. Whether you come in your car, your bike, your feet, your roller skis, you pay SOMETHING in the non winter season. Mainly I personally want cars to pay to get in. If it means I have to pay when I come on my bike, I am OK with that because I know that the fantastically manicured park that is better maintained than the lawn in front of my house (that either says something about my yardwork or their yardwork), does not come for free.

The skier in me tells the cyclist in me, "dude, you're getting a free ride". The cyclist is me is telling the skier in me, "Yeah, it's because you take your stupid car to go to the park not to mention every time you go, they have to prepare the surface for you, at least I get there on human power and Mackenzie King took care of the surface once when our grandparents were paying taxes"

DeSalvo Custom Road Bike

This is a one of a kind road bike that Mike DeSalvo built for me and now an opportunity for a collector to have as their own. The process began in the Fall of 2006 when spoke over the phone a number of times and he came up with this - my baby. I received it in January 2007. It's been ridden a total of four times in the last two years (2015-16; not ridden this season) due to injuries and life getting in the way. Now, with a torn rotator cuff and separated AC joint I am off the bikes for at least a year. I hate to see her go but it's time to move on. It has been meticulously cared for and babied. No scratches, dents or crashes.
