Tell us where you want to go and you could win a bike to help you get there!

The Plan will establish a strategy and specific projects to promote bicycling as a mode of transportation in HRM. The goal is to create a municipality where bicycling is a safe, appealing, and efficient means of getting around.

The Bike Plan Study is seeking public consultation on projects, priorities, and policies to be included in the plan.

Public meetings will be held July 8-11 in various locations throughout HRM. Bicycle transportation planners from Canada and the USA will be on-hand to help facilitate the discussion.SCHEDULE:
