Bike Friendly New Glasgow
The Town of New Glasgow is committed to creating a safe and welcoming environment for cyclists in our community. The Department of Community Development has led several bike friendly initiatives at the community, organizational and public policy levels.
Blue Route Hubs Project
The Blue Route Hubs Project is a collaboration between Bicycle Nova Scotia (BNS) and several communities throughout the province, including the Town of New Glasgow. The project was launched to help communities evaluate their potential to develop cycling routes that make residents of all ages and people with disabilities feel comfortable cycling in their community. BNS wants to encourage active transportation throughout the province by supporting efforts to build safe and convenient bike routes. Visit Blue Route Hubs Project in New Glasgow to learn more.
Bike Friendly Business Program
People who choose cycling for primary or occasional transportation and people who choose to cycle on vacation are growing in numbers. Bicycle Nova Scotia’s Bike Friendly Business Certification Program can help your business stand out as a leader in providing service for customers or employees that want to arrive by bike. Get certified for free and Bicycle Nova Scotia will mail you a Bike Friendly Certified window decal to decorate your storefront and add your business to their online bicycling destination map. By working together, we can help make New Glasgow a bike-friendly community and a top cycling destination.
