Don’t hide inside, Go for a ride!

Held Tuesday, Februay 1st; Tuesday, March 8th and Wednesday, April 27th at 7:00pm, topics discussed will include winter cycling preparations, the bicycle tour as a winter holiday option and the science and medicine behind avoiding injury and achieving maximum fitness.
The CBRM will keep active transportation on the municipal agenda with public consultations held January 31st and February 1st. Designer Rick McReady will be on hand to answer questions and discuss ideas regarding the planned Grand Lake Road Multi-use Path for pedestrians, cyclists, in-line skaters and other non-motorized active transportation along Grand Lake Road, from Mayflower Mall to Reserve Mines. The path was identified as one of the “signature” projects in CBRM’s Active Transportation Plan, connecting the communities of Sydney and Glace Bay, and providing a link to Cape Breton University.
