... In other news...

Spring is approaching in some parts of the country. .... So that means
its almost time for a Canada Wide Mapping party marathon.

As im looking at the cyclemap, i can see that some cities have their
local cycle network mapped out better than others.
This is a great chance to explore your city, and see where the LCN exists.
Most cities that have multiple neighboring cities, also have a
regional cycle network.

I noticed on the Diary entry post than Michael was interested in the
toronto cyclenetwork.

& when i was in toronto in January, i had a look at the toronto
cyclemap, and could see that there are some gaps remaining when
compared to Opencyclemap.

Over here in Victoria, I know that there are at least 2 regional cycle
routes that need to be mapped.
So im thinking that perhaps mid-april, say the 14th? we could do a
trans-canada mapping party with the goal to complete our regional
cycling routes?

If anyone is interested, feel free to update the Canada wiki-page with
details on your city and where & when you'll be hosting a mapping
party.  I might be in Princeton, BC at that day, . .. so hopefully,
with enough people, we can have events going on in many cities and
getting the regional trails mapped.
