Celebrate cycling in Halifax!
Bike Week is a nine day long celebration of cycling in the Halifax Regional Municipality, from June 1-9. Activities include signature events like the Southwest Sunday Cycle, MEC Bike to School Day, and SWITCH, but also dozens of smaller community events, rides, workshops and safety campaigns throughout the municipality targeting cyclists of all ages and abilities. On average, 50 events take place over 10 days encouraging over 7,000 people in the region to take part in physical activity, learn about cycling, and - of course- have fun!
Want to be actively involved in your community?
From June 1-9, join more than 7,000 residents from across the municipality in leading healthier and active lifestyles and have some fun while doing it.
Bike Week has grown from 18 events with just 800 participants in 2006, to 60 events reaching 7,000+ participants in 2018. It is through community groups, bike enthusiasts and supporters like you that we can expand our reach and improve the lives of residents living in the municipality by encouraging them to get out and become more active.
Your contribution will help to offset event costs, fund youth grants, and encourage broad participation for greater local impact by supporting dozens of community groups to host events all over Halifax.
