The DalTRAC team promoted the Thumbs Up! Share the Road Nova Scotia campaign throughout Bike Week 2016. From June 3-12, bike safety tips and videos were shared on social media, and community events were attended to distribute promotional materials and discuss safer road sharing with community members. We partnered with the Town of Pictou Parks and Recreation department for their Pictou County Bike Week and attended events in the Halifax Regional Municipality. Switch Open Street Sundays was held on June 5 in Dartmouth, with over 500 community members enjoying the open streets with activities for all ages. We also wrapped up the week attending the Halifax Cycling Coalition Bike Expo on Sunday June 12 at the Emera Oval.
