Riding a bike is a healthy, climate-friendly way to get around.  Let's make it fun & safe.

 

Give Space & Be Seen

Throughout the month of June, follow HPE Public Health on Facebook and Twitter to learn how cyclists and motorists can make it easier and safer to share the road.

Brush Up on the Rules of the Road

With the development of new cycling infrastructures there are new expectations for cyclists and motorists on the roads. Check out this Quick Guide to Bicycle Infrastructure to help you learn how to share the road in these new environments.
