Charlottetown city council has struck an ad hoc committee to make recommendations on setting up bicycle routes throughout city.

Mayor Clifford Lee said the priority for the bicycle lanes will be the safety of the cyclists.
"We're looking at what streets, what areas of the city we can actually create designated bicycle lanes," said Lee.
"Bicycling has become a mode of transportation. There is a lot of people in our community that would use bicycles to get back and forth from one end of the city to the other as long as they didn't have to compete with motor vehicle traffic."
Deputy Mayor Stu MacFadyen will chair the committee. Also on the committee are parks, recreation and leisure activities chair Mitchell Tweel and public works, public property and street lighting chair Terry Bernard.
The committee has 45 days to report back to council.
