The Halifax Cycling Coalition is an organization of concerned citizens dedicated to improving cycling conditions and raising awareness of cycling issues in the Halifax Regional Municipality.
The HCC believes that increased bicycle use has the potential to
- Reduce traffic congestion
- Reduce HRM infrastructure spending
- Improve our health
- Enhance our urban environment
We want to change the circumstances that discourage bicycle use: inadequate cycling facilities, and lack of education for both cyclists and motorists.
The Halifax Cycling Coalition was formed in the wake of an unfortunate fatal cyclist accident on Barrington St. in 2007. The HCC was registered with Joint Stocks in December 2007.
