Bike Week 2013: Call for events and grant applications

Tuesday, March 12, 2013 (Halifax, NS) - HRM is calling on organizations and community groups to register their events for Bike Week 2013, taking place May 31- June 9. The registration deadline to ensure your event is included in printed promotional material is April 5.

The HRM Bike Week Committee is happy to offer Bike Week event grants again in 2013.  The application deadline is 4:30 p.m. on April 5.  This grant program exists to encourage and support groups in hosting Bike Week events within their own communities, and to ensure events align with HRM Bike Week goals and objectives. Grants are available in amounts up to $150 each, and the funding may be used for food, equipment, promotion, prizes, and speaker honorariums.  A limited number of ‘special’ grants of up to $2,000 each will be considered this year.  These special grants will only be awarded to events that can produce high attendance numbers, focus on attracting new cyclists, and present unique opportunities in HRM.

HRM Bike Week is a week-long community event that aims to celebrate  all forms of cycling,  improve awareness of cycling safety and education  as well as increase the numbers of people cycling throughout the region. There is something for everyone, even if you do not own a bike!  It is a community-driven event encouraging people of all ages and abilities to get outside and be more active.  Last year’s Bike Week welcomed over 5,000  participants to approximately 40 events.
