Bicycle Friendly Communities
The Town of Halton Hills created a Bicycle Friendly Community Sub-Committee of the Town’s Active Transportation 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 2014 and the Town received the Bronze Award at the Ontario Bike Summit on April 14th 2014.

The BFC sub-committee would welcome more members to assist in promoting cycling. Our new goal is to reach Silver designation.
