    BICYCLE FRIENDLY COMMUNITIES

    The Town of Halton Hills created a Bicycle Friendly Community Sub-Committee of the Town's Trails and Cycling Citizens' Advisory Committee in order to submit a successful application to the Share the Road Coalition to achieve a Bicycle Friendly Community designation. A committee was recruited that represented key areas for the advancement of cycling in the community. Recreational cyclists, retail store owners, police, engineering staff, fire personnel, health promoters, and cycling club members have all been working together to make our community bicycle friendly. 

    The application is rigorous and requires that a community illustrate progress in 5 areas: Education, Engineering, Encouragement, Enforcement, and Evaluation. Prior to submitting the application the committee assessed our current situation and found that it first needed to put in place new cycling activities and work on improvements in the areas of policy and encouragement.

    An application was made for a designation in 2012 and the Town proudly received honourable mention for its efforts.

    The committee has significantly expanded its 2013 cycling program, to encourage cycling in Halton Hills. It is anticipated that a second application will be made for a Bicycle Friendly Community designation this year.

    The sub-committee would welcome more members to assist in promoting cycling.
