Halifax Bike Map

Welcome! To help you plan your cycling routes, the municipality produces two printed map documents and an online interactive map of existing bicycle facilities and suggested routes.


Access our interactive web mapping app on your phone or computer. You can zoom, pan around, and find your neighbourhood to help plan the best cycling routes near you. If you click on a route on the map, a pop-up with more information will appear.  To help you navigate the terms and icons on the map, check out the Bicycle Facility Dictionary and Cycling Signage and Road Markings page.

Our newest printed map focuses on all-ages-and-abilities (AAA) cycling facilities within the downtown core of Halifax and Dartmouth within the circumferential highway.  This map includes educational insets on how to use the new AAA bikeways and folds down in an accordion style that fits into your pocket. 

Latest issue: August 2022.
