This past Saturday, DalTRAC attended the Heartland Tour in Halifax. The Heartland Tour describes itself as “… an effective vehicle for raising the awareness of the benefits of physical activity and encouraging all Nova Scotians to enjoy at least 150 minutes of physical activity of their choice each week”. Attendees arrived and departed on bicycles, emphasizing the importance of active transportation on personal health.
DalTRAC spent the afternoon handing out “Share the Road” car magnets, bookmarks, and posters. Promoting cycling safety best practices is an important part of promoting a mode-shift towards active transportation, and DalTRAC was thrilled to be a part of it.
