The two inner lanes surrounding the north Common are reserved for active transportation this Sunday. Rather than look at those streets as "closed" to traffic, the Halifax Cycling Coalition and the Halifax Regional Municipality are looking at those lanes as open...wide open. Cyclists, skate boarders, roller bladers, unicyclists and yeah, you pedestrians too, are invited to celebrate Bike Week and Active Transportation Month. Games, music, snacks, info and activities will fill the celebratory afternoon. Cheer on the kids' bike race at 1:45pm or the annual fixed gear race that'll end the party. Haven't got a bike of your own, or curious about what cycle chic is? Test drive some stylin' city bikes from the Halifax Cycle Gallery at the Open Street Party, too. We say, ride on.
Sunday May 29, Halifax North Common (and the inner lanes of Robie, Cogswell, North Park and Cunard streets) , 2-5pm, free, 802-3532
