This summer, we welcomed some incredible new infrastructure and commitments to cycling in Halifax including:
- A new protected bike lane on South Park Street
- A $25 million dollar funding commitment for a minimum grid of All Ages and Abilities (AAA) bike routes in Halifax and Dartmouth supported by our municipal, provincial, and federal governments
- Extension of the Barrington Street Greenway to the Devonshire Avenue bicycle lane
- A new local street bikeway on Vernon Street
But these commitments didn’t just happen. With our members’ support, we’ve been able to engage city council, the media, and our community on cycling issues, paving the way for safer cycling infrastructure. We’ve also been working with our partners to provide bike education, promote a national active transportation strategy, and celebrate cycling in Halifax.
By registering or renewing your Halifax Cycling Coalition membership today, you’ll strengthen our voice at city hall and make sure strong advocacy for protected bike lanes continues in Halifax. You’ll also get access to member benefits like discounts at local businesses, free bicycle registration, and an HCC sticker. Rejoin as a sustaining monthly member and you’ll also receive a free HCC t-shirt (while supplies last).
If you join or renew your HCC membership before the end of 2019, you’ll be entered to win an Electra Loft 3i step-through bicycle, a pannier bag, a bike basket, a bell, and one year of free bike tune-ups at Halifax Cycles.
