Halifax Cycling Coalition (HCC) with the support of Halifax Regional Municipality started the Bikes Mean Business project in 2011. The goal of the project is to develop a relationship between the Halifax Cycling Coalition and the local business community. The HCC developed a short presentation outlining the benefits associated with supporting cycling in HRM and the common interests between local business districts and cycling. Thus far, HCC has met and presented with the board of directors or executive directors’ of four local business commissions (Downtown Halifax, Spring Garden Road, Quinpool Road and Downtown Dartmouth). Another goal of the project is to educate these groups of easy steps to support the growth of cycling in the Region. As a result of this project the HCC has forged strong working relationships with each of these organizations that we believe will help to suport cycling in HRM.
