The following organizations support the HCC via our Bikes Mean Business program.
MEC Halifax is a great supporter of cycling in the HRM. In past years MEC provided the HCC with financial support for cycling events/public lecture, community bike maintenance clinics and group social rides, as well as MEC products, such as bike lights, for cycling promotion at events. MEC is also a huge contributor to HRM’s Bike Week, providing staff, funding, and other support for events such as the Bicycle Expo at the Oval each June. MEC also supports HCC’s annual I LIGHT HFX that gives away 400 sets of lights to communities in need throughout HRM.
MEC offers HCC members several benefits, including a 10% discount on Bike Shop services and 10% discount on purchases during HCC Club Nights.
Finally, you can also purchase HCC memberships at MEC Halifax.
