Johanna Dean Memorial Ride
Thank you to the approximately 300 cyclists who came out to the Johanna Dean Memorial Ride last week. Her family was blown away by the show of support for the activity she loved so dearly. The event raised considerable public attention for the need to enhance the safety of cyclists in Halifax. We installed a “Ghost Bike” memorial at the intersection of Windmill Rd and Albro Lake Dr to serve as a permanent reminder to Johanna’s life.
Annual General Meeting & Call for Directors
Our Annual General Meeting will take place on Tuesday, June 24th at 6pm in room HB-4 at the Dalhousie Architecture and Planning Building, 5410 Spring Garden Rd, Halifax. An HCC volunteer will be at the door to direct everyone to the correct room. Coffee, tea, and light refreshments will be served. Memberships will be available at the door. Come on out for a review of the past year and an update on plans for the coming season. We have some exciting news that we can’t wait to share with you.
We are seeking nominations for our Board of Directors. If you are interested please email email@example.com
Flagstops on Father’s Day Ride
Three Routes, Two Counties, One Ride! Join the first cross-municipal trail ride collaboration for Bike Week in Nova Scotia. Start on the rail trail anywhere between HRM (Lakeside) and Lunenberg, and converge in Hubbards for the bash. For further details, and registration visit firstname.lastname@example.org
The organizers of the Flagstops on Father’s Day trail ride is looking for a volunteer to serve as a sweep rider from the Bike and Bean to Hubbards on Sunday June 15th. This would involve riding behind the trail ride participants to make sure no one falls behind. Ideally the volunteer would possess some basic bike maintenance skills, but this is not required. The volunteer would also be given a ride back from Hubbards to the city after the ride. See details of the ride below and contact email@example.com if you are interested in helping.
Bike Week: June 6th - 15th
Bike week starts on Friday, June 6th… Check out the schedule at halifax.ca/bikeweek See you there!
This week is the National Commuter Challenge. Log your green commutes at commuterchallenge.ca and help Halifax win the title of greenest commuters in Canada.
District 8 Community Fund
Voting for the District 8 (Peninsula North) Community Fund takes place at 6pm on June 11th at the Bloomfield Centre. All District 8 residents are encouraged to attend and vote on the projects that matter to them. The Dalhousie Bike Centre is seeking $20,000 to dramatically expand the network of bike repair stands throughout the city. Follow the event on Facebook or check out the Dal Bike Centre’s proposal.
Hollis St Bike Lane
There will be a consultation on the Hollis St Bike Lane in late June. City staff assure us that it will be built before the end of summer. Follow us on twitter, @ibikehfx, or on Facebook, HalifaxCyclingCoalition, for more information. We will post the date of the consultation as soon as it is confirmed.
100 in 1 Day
What if hundreds of people united, each putting in place the changes they wish to see in their city, all on the same day?
On June 7, for the first time-ever, Halifax will host 100in1Day.
This citizen-driven festival will unite people across the city to make Halifax a better place by creating acts of urban change.
These acts, or interventions, have the potential to raise awareness of urban and social issues, inspire ideas, and motivate leaders to consider new approaches to old problems.
