GEOG 491 #biketoria was a course offered through the University of Victoria by Geography Faculty and City of Victoria planning staff. Students had the opportunity to work and learn off campus, to meet professionals and complete real-world projects supporting the City's ambitious plan to become Canada's best cycling city. The first course was developed by Geography profs Cam Owens and Trisalyn Nelson, and subsequent versions (under the new title Urban Mobilities) have been delivered by Victoria sustainability consultant Ray Straatsma.
