September 8, 2022
On Sunday, September 18th Hackforge will be participating in the city’s favourite street fair, Open Streets Windsor. This event, now in its seventh year, will be closing 8km of roadway between Sandwich Town and Ford City. With vehicular traffic prohibited, pedestrians, cyclists, and rollerbladers will take over!
In addition to promoting active transportation and healthy living, Open Streets helps to foster a sense of community. All along the route attendees will find booths and activities from various local businesses and organizations.
Hackforge will be located in the Healthy Communities Hub at the corner of Riverside and Caron. As part of our C3Tech initiative, we’ll be gathering community insight into the features of an ideal cycling route – the results of which will directly influence the routing algorithm for WindsorEssexCycling.ca. We’ll also have a sample of the routing system – a result of our last Hackathon! – available for everyone to test out.
Looking forward to seeing the city in the streets between 10 am 2 pm on September 18th!
