Bike in Halton and enjoy all we have to offer

From flat urban paths to rolling rural routes, cycling in Halton can appeal to any level of cyclist.

Recently, we updated the Cycling in Halton Map. The cycling map will help you plan routes throughout the Region and provides helpful tips for safe cycling. Seven routes are highlighted in addition to the on-road bike lanes, and multi-use paths through each municipality.

Riding your bike can be much more than a fun, healthy, recreational activity. You can also use it for riding to the grocery store or to work. Did you know that 1/3 of all trips by car in Halton are less than 5 km? That’s a distance that can easily be biked! Not only will it help you be more physically active, but cycling is one of the most environmentally friendly modes of transportation. Visit your municipality’s websites for more information on bike lanes and paths in your neighbourhood.

Whether you’re cycling along our waterfront in Oakville and Burlington or more northerly in Milton and Halton Hills, there’s something for everyone who wants to get outside and stay active.

The Cycling in Halton Map will be ready in early May. If you would like a copy of the Cycling in Halton Map, please dial 311, email accesshalton@halton.ca or come in to the Regional headquarters at 1151 Bronte Road, Oakville.

I hope you enjoy your cycling in Halton. You will see why Halton Region is such a great place to live, work, raise a family and retire.
