Advocacy

The Halifax Cycle Coalitions operates a number of campaigns to promote cycling in Halifax. We currently have three major campaigns underway:

Bikes Mean Business – Studies have shown that bike lanes lead to an increase in business. We’re working with Halifax businesses to promote the adoption of bike lanes.

Crosstown Connector – The Crosstown Connector is a project to create a continuous North-South bike lane across the Halifax Peninsula, from Leeds St all the way to Point Pleasant Park.

Bicycle Helmets – The Coalition was asked in fall 2013 to review its position in support of mandatory bike helmet legislation. Updates are available on this campaign page.

Safety – Summary page coming soon. We’re working to promote measures to improve safety for all road users.
